Greenbrier River

AFSRC scientists are studying ways to minimize agricultural impacts on water quality. In this picture muddy water from a large West Virginia limestone spring enters the Greenbrier River. The spring drains a 75 square mile mixed land use watershed that is predominantly grazed by beef cattle. AFSRC research aims to help producers reach production goals while reducing delivery of sediment, nutrients, and pathogens to the Appalachian Region’s water resources.
