This work provides guidance on preventing pollution from farms. In England and Wales, agriculture produces more than 100 tonnes of slurry and a million tonnes of silage effluent each year. This represents a major water pollution threat unless the wastes are adequately collected and stored. Farmers, landowners, designers, consultants and contractors will find guidance on construction requirements for farm waste facilities which conform to the Control of Pollution Regulations (1991) and the relevant British Standards and Codes. The first part of the book provides background information for the planning and design of waste storage, the nature and quantities of farm wastes, and the principles of storage and disposal. The second part gives design and construction guidance for specific types of store, including earth-banked compounds, weeping-wall stores, silos and silage effluent tanks. Also included is valuable guidance on materials, construction techniques, costs, maintenance and repairs.
