Abstract/Contents:States that Wisconsin "has taken action to reduce non-point source pollution from fertilizer. Beginning in March 2008, farms and non-farm entities...will need to comply with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource (WDNR) Rule 151." Explains that "the purpose of the technical standard is to manage the amount, method, timing, and source of nutrient applications to turf. The ultimate goal is to minimize nutrient entry into surface and groundwater while maintaining turf density of at least 70%." States that "the document...defines how and when nutrients will be applied - primarily N [nitrogen] and P [phosphorus], though some consideration is given to potassium even though it is not considered a potential water contaminant of concern." Mentions that "steps to protect surface water contamination include prohibitions against applying fertilizer to saturated soils, wetlands, surface water or impervious surfaces such as driveways or sidewalks." Suggests management plans, stating that "nutrient management plans will need to be developed for areas that receive fertilizer...The management plan will have to include a map showing site topography, designated uses, soil test locations, sensitive areas and surface waters." Concludes that "one of the most enlightening aspects of the situation is that the WDNR realizes modifications may be needed in the future and have planned for the technical standard to be subject to revision as necessary."
