A portion of the waters of the Chowan River drainage basin within the state of Virginia has been classified as 'nutrient enriched'. Ultimately this nutrient enrichment has negative impacts upon water quality within the Albemarle-Pamlico estuary. One source of nutrients in surface waters in this region is the prevalence of swine production operations with little or no waste utilization planning. The purpose of this project was to demonstrate the benefits of waste management to the program participants and their community. Five new animal waste storage systems were constructed in six southeastern counties at a 75% cost-share rate. Seventeen existing storage systems received cost-share assistance to encourage the proper land application of the wastes to adjacent cropland. This represents approximately 240,185 lbs. of nitrogen and 288,222 lbs. of phosphate being more efficiently utilized. In addition, thirteen demonstration and test plots were established with the cooperators in the program.
