The goal of the "Management of Agricultural Wastes in the Lower Fraser Valley" program is to evaluate the production, treatment and disposal of agricultural wastes, primarily manure, within the context of groundwater contamination and impacts to surface water. The findings of this evaluation will provide a background against which policies and strategies for improving nutrient (manure and inorganic fertilizers) management can be developed through a multi-stakeholder consultative process. For the purposes of this program the Lower Fraser Valley was divided into twenty Agricultural Waste Management Zones; these zones are shown in Figure 1.1. The program has been broken into several component projects (Appendix A) which address three general questions: what is the current state of agricultural nutrient management, what are the practical options for improving nutrient management, and how might the various practical options be implemented. The evaluation of the current state of agricultural nutrient management rel
