Water Quality in Accomack County not Impacted by Poultry Operations


A study undertaken by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Eastern Shore Laboratory in 2018 failed to establish any correlation between Enterococcus contamination or elevated ammonia, total nitrogen or total phosphorus in streams and waterways surveyed as a result of poultry farming activities in the county.  The report prepared by the Institute noted the negative effect of septic systems, draining fields and the presence of fecal contamination from livestock.
