Spatial and Temporal Distribution Characteristics of Agricultural Non-point Source Pollution in Xixi Watershed of Jinjiang Basin

The SWAT model was applied to analyze the temporal-spatial distribution patterns of non-point source pollution loads and the difference of pollution loads of different land use types in Xixi Watershed of Jinjiang Basin. The results showed that both yearly nitrogen and phosphorus pollution loads were evenly distributed during 1973 to 1979, the annual TN pollution from non-point source was 1530 t, or 6.3 kg/ha, and the annual TP pollution from non-point source was 270 t, or 1.1 kg/ha during 1973 to 1979 in the watershed. Considerable differences were identified on both monthly nitrogen and phosphorus pollution loads. The TN and TP pollution loads during the flood season (from April to September) accounted for 76.2% and 75.8% of the annual load respectively. There were great differences in both TN and TP pollution loads of different land use types in the study area, and the pollution load of both farmland and orchard was higher than that of the other land use types. TN and TP pollution loads of farmland accounted for 66% and 83% of total watershed. There was a great spatial difference in the non-point source pollution load of the study area. The critical source areas of non-point source pollution are mainly located at Guanqiao Town, Longmen Town, Changkeng Town, Shangqing Town and Dapu Town, where the efforts of controlling pollution should be made.
