Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

For each of the activities addressed in this project, feedlot runoff and manure storage nutrient and pathogen reductions are documented using
the MinnFARM Model. Nitrogen, phosphorus, fecal coliform, COD, and BOD are all estimated to determine if pollutants are elevated and if a
solution to the elevated levels can be designed.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This project resulted in estimated annual reductions of 423 lb. of nitrogen, 218 lb. of phosphorus, and significantly reduced bacteria entering the water resource of concern.

Project Overview

The Winona County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) developed this project to help reduce the amount of pathogens and nutrients generated by livestock from reaching surface waters and groundwater by targeting feedlots located in areas that are highly susceptible to groundwater pollution and sinkhole formation.

All feedlots are located within watersheds that drain to waters listed as having a Total Maximum Daily Load impairment. Project priority or target area includes those areas designated by the Winona County Geologic Atlas has either High or Moderate to High susceptibility of the groundwater system to pollution or is rated High or Moderate to High sinkhole probability.
