Since the strict dependence of nitrate content in groundwater on land use, the APNC, related to the use of fertilizers, is derived from the land use map.
The Potential Nitrate Contamination (PNC) map is produced by overlaying the agricultural (APNC), urban (UPNC), and periurban (PuPNC) maps.
This is reflected in the APNC map, showing almost 80% of the area at high and very high degree of Potential Nitrate Contamination for agriculture (Figure 4(b)).
The generally very useful sensitivity analysis, performed by removing alternatively the various layers from the final susceptibility map , would have in this case low significance, involving only the APNC, UPNC, and PuPNC maps, because the original layers of the vulnerability map are not available for the whole area.

As a result of those meetings, Cambodian parents participated in some basic trainings and began taking leadership roles at their schools and within APNC. One of these leaders turned out to be our toughest negotiator with a top public school official.
In March of 2002, APNC was recognized as the best emerging community organization in Chicago by six area foundations that fund organizing.
