A three year co-funded project exploring ways to reduce diffuse nitrate pollution was completed in September this year. Water management in co-operation with agriculture (WAgriCo) completed a review of practical groundwater protection measures that farmers can implement to reduce nitrate pollution. Such protection measures included the planting of cover crops to reduce leaching, fertiliser spreader calibration and manure management. The study area included the Frome, Piddle and Wey catchments, Dorset where public water supply boreholes are at risk of non-compliance with the EC Drinking Water Directive.
