Underground Agricultural Waste Management Tank Design: The overarching goal of this cooperative effort is to maximize the application of NRCS program funding to address Rhode Island's resource concerns and improve watershed health and ecology by implementing best animal waste management practices. Competition for this project is intended to provide the best value for government and citizens; promote innovation opportunities for accomplishing agency goals; create more partnershipopportunities; and balance workload demands. The project is for the design of a slurry swine waste management system consisting of a partially slatted floor and underground storage tank that will capture and store swine waste. The waste subsequently recycles nutrients and organic matter via land application. Benefits include pollution reduction by waste containment and management, improving crop productivity and yields, soil health and tilth by increasing nutrients, micronutrients, and organic matter content while reducing imported commercial fertilizer and associated costs. The object of this project is to produce “ready for construction” documents that, when implemented, will improve control of soil erosion, and protect air and water quality: these items are the keys to watershed health. The total amount of funding available is $60,000.00. Any entity with the resources to provide the associated design services according to NRCS conservation practice standards and deliver electronic and hardcopy calculations, facility design,inspection plan, quality assurance plan, site -specific operations and maintenance plans, construction and material specifications signed and stamped by a licensed Rhode Island P.E.
