Grad student Heim presents on dairy/watershed management


Graduate student Alexis Heim, Environmental Science and Policy, attended the 2015 International Soil and Water Assessment Tool Conference and Workshops, held October 12-16 at Purdue University. The conference drew more than 140 attendees from 10 countries with 96 oral and 22 poster presentations. She presented part of her thesis work on “Assessing the Impact of Alternative Management Strategies in a Dairy-dominated Agricultural Watershed Vulnerable to High Sediment and P Runoff” with co-authors Paul Baumgart and Kevin Fermanich. As part of the watershed research lab at UWGB, it is expected the work will help watershed managers target implementation of alternative management strategies which improve water quality.
