The Friston POD

The Friston Pod is an example of farmers clubbing together to address an issue identified at a
specific water Sampling Site.
At a cost estimated to be in excess of $18,000 over a 9 month period, 15 landowners have identified
waterways running through their properties that could become areas of concern depending on a
variety of on farm and weather events. They have identified 13 discharge points and are undertaking
water sampling at each of these points on a fortnightly basis with a view to identifying seasonal
trends and addressing them through changed management practices.
