A recent report to the legislature by the Agencies of Natural Resources and Agriculture, Food and Markets describes current knowledge about tiles, often conflicting research results on the impact of tile drainage on water quality, and the need to base decisions that impact farming economics and management on sound science. Learn about each agency’s perspective and next steps for addressing this important issue in Vermont.
