The report covers six months of pilot-scale experiments and six months of data collection at one field experiment. The pilot-scale studies were conducted on plots which were 6-feet by 30-feet with a 4.5% slope. These studies indicated that: (1) loadings of 2 to 3 inches per week were suitable for field testing, (2) the weekly load should be applied in fractional increments at daily to three times per week frequencies, and (3) instantaneous spray rates should be less than 0.10 inch per hour. The field studies covered in this report were initiated at a 12,000-head capacity feedlot and utilized a four-component train for runoff collection and treatment. The treatment train included collection lagoons, a storage reservoir, the overland-flow area, and a final polishing pond.
