Louisiana's Coastline, Nutrient Runoff, Poultry

Season 8, Episode 3 of 7

With Louisiana's coastline sinking and washing away, projects to restore the Mississippi Delta aim to reverse decades of mismanagement that has blocked the depositing of sediment at the river's mouth. Pollution in Lake Erie has focused attention on nutrient runoff from Ohio's farms, and government advisors are assisting farmers to develop solutions. With nutrient runoff also a problem where farms use poultry litter to fertilize fields, researchers are finding ways to recycle litter into nitrogen and other useful chemicals.
