Manure Storage in the Town of Manchester

The District recently utilized funding through Round 25 of the Agricultural Nonpoint Source Abatement and Control Program to construct a large satellite manure storage on a dairy farm in the Town of Manchester. This 8.4 million gallon lined storage will serve as nutrient storage for a large tract of remote cropland and will hold excess manure over the winter months so it can be applied at times of maximum crop uptake during the growing season. The next step of this project is to install an underground manure transfer line from a hookup pump at the road to this storage so the farm can transfer waste into the facility as efficiently as possible. This storage is set up for dragline application of manure which further increases the efficiency of application and removes heavy manure tanker traffic from the fields.
