Agricultural Industry Water Quality Awareness Project The objectives of the project are to use KFRM''s radio coverage to provide water quality information and raise the awareness. This will be done through radio programming, which includes water quality protection reminders, promotions for special events where water quality oriented surveys and booths will be located or other ""natural resource management programs associated with agriculture. The Ag Technology Today regular feature will include water quality oriented programming focused towards the agriculture sector (producers, farm service centers etc.). KFRM staff will attend farm shows and provide surveys, then formulate a compilation (with KDHE) process. Farm booth themes will revolve around local water quality and agriculture concerns.
