Manure Storage & Composting Facilities
Got animals? Then you’ve got manure and managing it in a responsible way is very important for the health of your animals, nearby waterways and groundwater. Aside from storing the manure away from any waterways, one of the simplest things you can do is to cover your manure to prevent clean rainwater from being contaminated. The District has helped many landowners in the valley find funding for, plan and build manure composting facilities. These structures not only provide a covered place to store manure, but multiple bays in which the manure can be turned and composted for use as fertilizer on crops.
