Abstract: We prove that each ideal of a locally formally equidimensional analytically unramified Noetherian integral domain is the contraction of an ideal of a one-dimensional semilocal birational extension domain. We give an application to a problem concerning the primary decomposition of powers of ideals in Noetherian rings. It is shown in an earlier paper by the second author that for each ideal in a Noetherian commutative ring there exists a positive integer such that, for all , there exists a primary decomposition where each contains the -th power of its radical. We give an alternate proof of this result in the special case where is locally at each prime ideal formally equidimensional and analytically unramified.
