Soil Investigations for Liquid Manure Storage Areas in Hydrologically Vulnerable Townships in Douglas County
This project seeks to inventory twenty registered feedlots identified as having an Unpermitted Liquid Manure Storage Area. Specifically, this inventory would include offering cost-share for soils investigations. These feedlots are located in three townships that have also been identified as having groundwater that is vulnerable to nutrient pollution, necessitating a need for nitrate testing per MN Department of Agriculture. These townships also house the vast majority of remaining unpermitted Liquid Manure Storage Areas in the County.
This project will result in a feedlot inventory of those registered feedlots having an Unpermitted Liquid Manure Storage. Specifically, this project will conduct soil investigation and the development of a Comprehensive Manure Nutrient Plan (CMNP)for ea
