Center pivots were used to spread nitrates from hog waste around when the former 70 Ranch near Kersey, Co. was the National Hog Farm. The spreading of hog waste has made the problem with noxious weeds on the ranch worse. The ranch is slated to become a unique and innovative water exchange site for Colorado's water thirsty Front Range. Agricultural water from the South Platte River will be stored in an alluvial well underneath the ranch and slowly released back into the South Platte River for growing municipalities. The one of a kind program is a cooperative endeavor between the Farmer's Reservoir and Irrigation Company and United Water and Sanitation. (MARC PISCOTTY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) CQ
