Collective promotes dual nutrient approach to maintain lake water quality
Stuart Morrison and Lachlan McKenzie posed two key questions to BOPRC Councillors on 2nd July.
- What mix of alum dosing, phosphorus mitigation and nitrogen mitigation would lower the economic costs to farming and the community but still achieve the TLI?
- Is there a chance that we can work with Council to achieve a catchment P target that contributes to lake P management and a less crippling final N target
Here is the paper they tabled, setting out the Collective’s view on the 435 tonne nitrogen target and the important ongoing role of alum dosing and on-farm phosphorus mitigation efforts.
