"The magnitude of this source of nitrogen to says the U.S. agriculture department, 'upset the prevailing concept hat only runoff and deep perco- ation from cattle feedlots re- quire control." The warning cams this week after test measurements of sev- eral lakes in northwest Colorado showed the water became over- enriched with nitrogen originat- ing from cattle urine. Government scientists found that as much as 90 per cent of the urinary nitrogen excreted on a feedlot can be released di- rectly into the air in the form of vaporized ammonia. Measurements made at a lake just over one mile from a feedlot indicated 30 pounds of nitrogen in the form of volatile ammonia was assimi- lated per acre of lake surface per year. Government soil scientists re- ported that amount1 of absorbed nitrogen is enough to enrich a lake averaging 20 feet in depth to between two and three times the concentration needed to en- courage growth of algae.
