Abstract/Contents:Presents a study initiated during 2008 for the analysis and improvement of the ability of vegetative filter strips to mitigate runoff. Notes that two primary objectives of the study were to "(1) use selected plant species in a field study to evaluate the efficacy of vegetative filter strips (VFS) and their most effective arrangement," and "(2) determine the fate of pesticides retained in VFS and the major mechanisms of degradation." Details methods and materials used during the experiment, stating that "25.4 gal [gallons] of run-on was applied to the top edge of each VFS as a water mixture with bromide (15.1 g/gal [grams per gallon]) via a solvent transfer pump, once using in-ground irrigation and once using an artificial rainfall system." Reports that "preliminary bromide data indicate that bromide (and presumably pesticides) are being intercepted by the vegetative plots." Concludes that researchers involved with the study "are currently [in 2010] analyzing 1,800 samples for pesticides."

USGA Summary Points:A 1-year storm event has been simulated twice on the VFS, once using irrigation and once using an artificial rainfall system A 5-year storm event has been simulated on the VFS using an artificial rainfall system. Preliminary bromide data indicate that bromide (and presumably pesticides) are being intercepted by the vegetative plots We are currently analyzing 1,800 samples for pesticides
