Phosphorus Reduction System

In addition to the Cover Crop Incentive Program, the FLPO, and FLILPARD are also combining resources to assist with the construction of an innovative Phosphorus Reduction System that is being implemented on the Hammer Kavazanjian farm, which is within the Fox Lake watershed. The project will use several water flow control devices and blast furnace slag to reduce the concentration of Phosphorus in the water within their drain tile line that eventually goes into Fox Lake. FLPO and FLILPARD believe it will be beneficial to support this farmer as they take on this innovative endeavor, so we will both provide financial assistance to help alleviate the cost of construction materials and hiring contractors. There are also arrangements for regularly scheduled sampling of the drain tile water to be tested in a lab to measure its effectiveness. Should the project succeed, it could be replicated to reduce Phosphorus outputs on other farms that use drain tiles. Nancy Kavazanjian recently received the 2020 Conservation Legacy Award.
