Community Overview

Dairy and livestock production can have significant impacts on water resources. Manure runoff from dairy farms and concentrated animal feeding operations can pollute local waterways and cause hypoxic conditions downstream. Dairy and livestock production also consume large quantities of water, and thus can contribute to water scarcity and associated challenges. Collective action helps companies and growers to develop and share best practices, set standards, and monitor progress towards reducing pollution and using water efficiently.
