Abstract: A comprehensive assessment combining field and laboratory activities is proposed to quantify the influence of animal feeding operations (AFOs) on freshwater streams in central Indiana. The proposed research is guided by three primary questions:
These research activities will provide multiple lines of evidence describing the source, transport, and effects of AFO-derived veterinary pharmaceuticals in central Indiana streams.
