The objectives of this study were to establish sampling methodologies for intensive monitoring of the environmental impact of animal feedlot runoff on in-stream water quality and to determine changes in stream water quality as a result of rainfall runoff from swine drylots on deep sands. The drylot studied annually markets approximately 4000 hogs on dirt lots with deep sandy soils and typifies physical and management factors common to Coastal Plain Swine production. Field results indicated that approximately 2% of the nutrient and organic load of the defecated swine wastes were transported from the sandy drylot surface in rainfall runoff. The constituent levels of this lot runoff were further reduced 20-to-fold by swamp and vegetative buffer filtering action prior to stream input.
