A New Mexico dairy is attempting to use an anaerobic digester to treat wastewater from the milking parlor. It also plans to use a constructed wetlands as a final cleaning step before water is reused for irrigation or reinjection into the aquifer. The 400-cow dairy is working with an engineering firm to design the unique system. The Natural Resources Conservation Service recently awarded the project a grant of $64,686.
