Agriculture BMP Handbook for TMDLs

EOR's Tom Miller is partnering with the Univ. of Wisc.- River Falls in collaborating with the MN Dept. of Agriculture to develop 'The Agricultural BMP Handbook for Minnesota'

The handbook will serve as a guide to aid many agricultural-related professionals such as engineers, soil and water conservation staff, consultants, watershed organizations, etc. in the selection of ag-BMPs based on several factors such as effectiveness, cost, installation, and maintenance concerns.

The reference manual will be constantly updated to include new technologies that will allow for easy, single-source access to the latest information about effective ag-BMP identification, design, and implementation. This manual will enable professionals to better understand the impact of BMP location, selection, and design in relation to TMDL goals and implementation plans - continually advancing Minnesota's ability to protect its water resources for future generations.
