A Manure Irrigation Workgroup is convening in 2013. The workgroup will review issues and develop guidance on the practices of applying livestock manure or process wastewater through irrigation equipment – referred to as “manure irrigation.”
Before the workgroup formally convenes, it will host two public research symposia to share information about benefits, concerns, and related issues associated with manure irrigation.
These public research symposia are intended to do the following:
1) Establish a common basis of information for workgroup participants and other interested stakeholders;
2) Identify the set of issues for the workgroup to address.
The dates and locations for those meetings are –
May 9, 2013, 9am-1pm – Stevens Point, Wisconsin (UW Stevens Point)
Dreyfus University Center, Alumni Room, 3rd floor, UW Stevens Point, 1015 Reserve St, Stevens Point, WI 54481
May 17, 2013, 9am-1pm – Menasha, Wisconsin (UW Fox Valley)
Union Room, UW Fox Valley, 1478 Midway Rd, Menasha, WI 53942
