Commenter: Barbara Woodward (Supporting Shenandoah Riverkeeper)

Please Pass The Poultry Litter Regulation
 

Hi: My name is Barbara Woodward and I live at 3327 Harness Creek Road, Annapolis MD. 21403. I'm writing because I use the Chesapeake Bay, the Shenandoah river and many more to boat, swim, & fish. and I support the regulationof end users and brokers when they use poultry litter as fertilizer.Pollution occurs when litter is unregulated !Please help improve the condition of our polluted rivers and ensure that our healthy streams remain pristine by requiring litter application setbacks from sensitive streams, soil testing to guide application rates, application close to crop growing season, and better litter covering practices. Thank you for considering my perspective. Barbara Woodward
