December 11 | Design of Drainage Water Quality Practices Workshop
The design and layout of new practices currently being considered for water quality improvements of farmland drainage will be the focus of a workshop scheduled for Dec. 11 in Fort Dodge. The day-long program will be held at the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Webster County office at 217 South 25th St., Suite C12, Fort Dodge. It will provide information essential for designing and planning new water quality practices such as bioreactors, controls structures, saturated buffers and wetlands. While the economic benefits of tiling are well recognized, there are also environmental impacts from drainage. These new technologies can be useful in minimizing negative environmental impacts. Register by contacting the ISU Extension and Outreach Webster County office at 515-576-2119 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or by completing and mailing the registration form in workshop brochure. Registration is $150 and includes morning refreshments, lunch and workshop materials. Registration cost increases to $175 if done after Dec. 7.
