Manure Applicator Training:  The Washington County SWCD and Washington County Water Quality Coordinating Committee (WQCC) have partnered with A&K AgriServices to offer farmers the opportunity to obtain manure applicator credits as required by the ECL SPDES permit to have at least 2 staff from a large CAFO and one staff from a medium CAFO to be certified.  While permitted farms will benefit from the credits, all farms that spread manure need to be aware of spreading guidelines being implemented in New York and Vermont.  Olgas Vargas, NRCS Soil Scientist will also give a talk on soil health – soil compaction.
