Medina Drain Monitoring Data, Fall 2013
Medina Drain originates at the Medina Dairy CAFO (formerly Vreba-Hoff 1) production area on Dillon Hwy. Medina Drain was added to Michigan's 303(d) list of impaired waters in 2004 after numerous manure discharges from liquid manure applications. The Medina Drain sampling site for all ECCSCM monitoring projects was at the first road culvert downstream from the dairy, on Ingall Hwy.
This site drains only Medina Dairy property, including the CAFO facility, production area, waste storage, and manure-application fields.
