SVID Manager Jim Trull yesterday told the district’s board that budget preparations are underway for deep soil sampling to be done for the Lower Valley groundwater advisory group.
Trull represents SVID and Roza Irrigation District on the groundwater group and its irrigated agriculture work group. He said $250,000 will be budgeted for deep soil sampling as part of research on the possible location of nitrates in groundwater.
Trull said the work group is also considering development of a mobile lab with a technician to work one-on-one with growers.
