Silage Seepage Containment Project



  • Provide a practical, real-world example of how existing silos can be retrofitted and at what cost to the farmer.
  • Three phases:
    • Design of the diversion/containment systems
    • Construction of containment system
    • Reporting of results, including costs


  • Eliminate high-strength silage seepage runoff into the local environment
  • Provide a “best practice” example of good management
  • Report practical construction and costs will allow other farmers to determine what is involved for remediation of own silos


  • Banner for trade show displayed developed
  • Follow up report of successfully working system in place to divert rainfall
