Cattle feedlot runoff pollution control necessitates facilities to intercept and store surface runoff so manure-contaminated waters are prevented from entering streams and lakes. Design of these facilities requires a matching of individual structures to proposed management techniques and regional climatic data. Two computer models were developed for these purposes. The first, the sufficient design program, was a simulation model which sized feedlot runoff retention ponds based upon climatic data and management dewatering policies. In addition to minimum pond volume, the sufficient design model listed average number of yearly pumpings for each simulated management alternative at a selected pumping rate. The second model, an economic budget generator, determined cost of open feedlot runoff control systems. The models were tested at seven selected locations in the United States to determine effects of five pumping rates and seven management dewatering alternatives on minimum storage volumes required to prevent discharges as defined by EPA Effluent Guidelines.
