The Use of Runoff Risk Advisory Tools for Water Quality Protection



Despite decades of efforts to reduce non-point source nutrient pollution, excessive nutrient losses continue from agricultural lands, contributing to water quality impairment. Wet, temperate and/or humid regions of the US, increasingly experience frequent runoff events that transport nutrients, pathogens, and/or sediment from recently applied nutrients to surface waters. Producers and conservation personnel need easy-to-use, real-time tools to help them identify when and where a runoff event may occur. This webinar will present four different current runoff advisory tools: the Runoff Risk Advisory Forecast (WI), Application Risk Management System (WA), Fertilizer Forecaster (PA), and the Saturated Area Forecast Tool (VA). Producers and conservation personnel can use these tools to change nutrient management strategies and avoid unintended impacts to water quality.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters for this webinar include:
  • Nichole Embertson, Whatcom Conservation District and Washington State University
  • Steve Buan, National Weather Service
  • Zachary Easton, Virginia Tech University
  • Anthony Buda, USDA-ARS - Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit
Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webcast information page.
