Working together in Whatcom County to understand the manure-groundwater connection
For nearly five years (2004-2009), scientists Barb Carey of the Department of Ecology and Dr. Joe Harrison from Washington State University monitored and measured the amount of manure applied to a 22-acre grass crop field in Whatcom County. The work included measuring soil, crop, and groundwater to track where the nitrogen from the manure went. (read the blog story, photos below)
