Title: Alternative technologies for water quality management

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Cranberry growers are concerned about the quality of water discharged from cranberry bogs into receiving surface waters. These water discharges may contain traces of pesticides arising from herbicide, insecticide or fungicide applications. They may also contain excess phosphorus from fertilizer application. Some cranberry farms have holding ponds to reduce the amount of pesticide or phosphorus in the discharged water from the bogs before release into receiving surface waters. Most farms can manage water and hold it on the marsh to reduce and or eliminate residues. However, where holding ponds or management options are unavailable or not practical, other means of treating pesticide or phosphorus-containing water may be required.

Keywords: Water quality management, water pollution, alternative technology
