Questions and Answers
|Answers to questions not answered during the live webcast|
|Q: Can geospacial approaches be used in the design of manure storage ponds?|
|A: From an NRCS standpoint, we would consider geospatial information accurate enough for the planning of a manure storage pond; however, for design, we would perform onsite survey and field investigation including soil borings, and soil sampling.|
