This Farm Converts Cow Manure to Clean Water

Runoff from farms has been a major source of pollution, but new technology is developed to convert cow's waste into new, clean water, Reports KAIT/NBC.

All of this is happening Whatcom County’s Coldstream Farm where filtrations machines are being used to clean cow manures to avoid pollution of nearby waters. Moreover, the newly processed water is so clean that even cows can drink it. And farmers say that with a bit more filtration, people could drink it, too. Although, for now, this water goes directly to the local salmon stream. 

The leftover solids are being used as fertilizer. To read more about this one million-worth pilot project visit NBC's KAIT page.
