Diffuse Agricultural Pollution Mitigation Methods
Multi-pollutant treatment of agricultural runoff by buffer zones, bioreactors, ditches and ponds
Tuesday 25th - Wednesday 26th September 2012
Organised and hosted by Rothamsted Research, North Wyke, Okehampton, Devon, UK.
In September 2012 Rothamsted Research, North Wyke will be hosting a workshop addressing methods of mitigating diffuse water pollution from agriculture. Topics covered will include buffer strips, subsurface permeable reactive barriers (bioreactors), and ditch and pond management for pollution mitigation. The objective of the workshop is to bring together leading scientists, policy makers, advisors and catchment practitioners from the UK and overseas to further our understanding of this range of diffuse agricultural pollution mitigation methods, different methods of implementation and different policy approaches. The workshop will take place in Southwest England over two days, with opportunities for oral presentations, poster presentations, workshop breakout sessions and a field visit. Further details will be available nearer the date. Registration costs £150.
