Waterway Vulnerability to Agricultural and Feedlot Practices

What riparian agricultural practices could be modified, so as to further protect the nearby waterways from rainwater runoff (e.g. fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, animal wastes)?

A little known group, Quantum Photonic Research & Development, LLC, a start-up, has devised a plan to use a process and a device to limit the amount of run-off being detected by standard methods. Rainwater run-off issues, considering the mounting evidence of Climate Change due to rapid regional, national and international weather patterns, is a concern now but will be a major health and safety problem in the next two decades.

Without changes in crop, farm-animal, and feedlot practices, near future water-quality monitoring may become moot?

It's all about the amount of water being used and how it is distributed...the topsoil can only hold so much...

Is this a question? Click here to post it to the Questions page.
