This project focuses on the development of working groups for four regional initiatives identified for USEPA Region 2: 1) animal waste management for small farms, 2) onsite wastewater treatment system management, 3) nutrient management, and 4) watershed management/water conservation/agricultural water management. Each of the four Land Grant Universities within Region 2 (University of Puerto Rico, University of the Virgin Islands, Cornell, and Rutgers) will assume a leadership role for each of these initiatives and working groups. The working groups will be responsible for identifying on-going research, extension and education activities in USEPA Region 2 and for developing a plan that builds and expands upon on-going efforts.
