November 14, 2012 – The Alberta Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is conducting a study to examine the impact of livestock manure of groundwater quality.

Information from the study will provide science-based information on the potential risks of livestock manure management activities on groundwater quality in Alberta.

It will also provide a better understanding of the processes affecting the fate and transport of manure constituents in the groundwater, under Alberta conditions; and, recommend solutions to mitigate potential risks.

For further information, contact Barry Olson, research scientist, soil and water, with Alberta Agriculture, at 403-381-5884.
