April showers bring May pollutants

By May 28, 2019March 12th, 2024No Comments

Large flooding throughout the Midwest has caused a lot of waste management problems for farmers this year. Manure lagoons are overflowing and threatening the surrounding environments. According to the Department of Natural Resources, there have been a number of incidents this year in which manure runoff has entered local water sources. This kind of pollution threatens the natural life in the water sources as manure builds up algae, which suffocates fish and other wildlife.

Not only is this a threat to the environment, it also puts farmers at risk for the costs and clean up associated with this kind of pollution. If you or anyone you know of might be experiencing this type of problem, Digested Organics has a solution that is customized to fit your needs.
