Grassland, Soil and Water Research Laboratory
Project Number: 6206-13610-007-29
Start Date: Jul 01, 2012
End Date: Oct 31, 2013
1) Evaluate runoff water quality from a vegetated treatment area demonstration site in Bexar County, Texas.
2) Initiate intensive, multi-year scientific evaluations of vegetated treatment area effectiveness at small pork operations in central Texas.
Evaluate an alternative wastewater treatment system (vegetated treatment area) designed to treat runoff and wash water prior to leaving the vegetated treatment area by collected runoff water quality and soil data.
