Strategies for reducing the amount of excessive nutrients, microbial pathogens and other related pollutants from entering source waters or impacting drinking water quality were identified and discussed. This study gathered information from availableMoreStrategies for reducing the amount of excessive nutrients, microbial pathogens and other related pollutants from entering source waters or impacting drinking water quality were identified and discussed. This study gathered information from available literature, technical advisors, a survey of drinking water utilities, and an in-depth examination of related source water protection case studies, in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, North Carolina, and New York. Strategic methods discussed include waste management planning, feed type optimization, clean water diversion, animal watering practices, animal health management, and soil erosion prevention. An electronic information center (www.eetinc.com/cafo) was developed that can further help a utility to evaluate their specific situation and identify potential cost-effective proactive measures.
