Risers aid agitation
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, 11. -
New S-Tube Risers available from
A.O. Smith Harvestore Products,
Inc. make it possible for all slurry
agitation to be performed at
ground level instead of from a pit.
According to Harvestore system
engineers, the S-Tube Risers may
reduce the amount of concrete
required for Slurrystore struc
tures. This saving can sub
stantially cut the cost of the
product to the customer.
The risers elevate the

WEST CHESTER - Pollution
isn’t only in the air, it’s invading
our lakes and streams and causing
an unhealthy habitat for fish.
Heavy rains in Chester County
have caused thousands of tons of
soil to be washed into waterways
and onto neighbors’ property. Let’s
stop mud from covering roads and
possibly causing an accident.
A new idea features filter strips.
These are a strip or area of
vegetation for removing sediment,
organic matter, and pollutants
from runoff. This strip of
vegetation will stop the runoff
from hitting the road. Natural
processes such as infiltration and
volatilization let the filter strips
work. Infiltration lets the fluid
through the filter so sediment
stays behind. Volatilization lets
material pass of as vapor into the
Filter strips can be used on
cropland and as a part of a waste
management system. Livestock
should be kept away from the filter
strip during the installation and
vegetation period. The time to
establish a strip would be in proper
weather conditions and according
to the needs of the grass seed.
Tall fescue or reed canary grass
or mixtures are recommended for
filter strip use. Vegetation needs
are lime and fertilizer, mulching,
and a fim> seedbed, the seedbed
should be worked to a depth of four
inches and be free of debris.
Mulching straw will prevent
moisture loss and protect the seeds
during grass growth.
Designed filter strips can be
applied to barnyard runoff and
cropland usage. For runoff from

Maintenance of the filter strip
involves routine fertilizing and
