Environmental Implications of Excess Fertilizer and Manure on Water Quality (NM1281 )
When nutrients and other pollutants associated with animal manures and commercial fertilizers are not managed properly, they can affect plant and animal life (including humans) negatively. Some of these impacts include algae blooms causing the depletion of oxygen in surface waters, pathogens and nitrates in drinking water, and the emission of odors and gases into the air.

It's All In Your Water 2013 Edition Reverse Osmosis - WQ1047
Reverse osmosis is a proven technology. One of the better known uses of RO is the removal of salt from seawater. Household RO units typically deliver small amounts (2 to 5 gallons per day) of treated water and waste three to seven times the amount of water treated.

Environmental Impacts of Brine (Produced Water) (R1850)
Brine, or produced water, is a byproduct of oil and gas production. It consists of water from the geologic formation, injection water, oil and salts. Brine has a high salt concentration, and the ions of the salts negatively affect the site's soil and vegetation, impairing its ability to produce crops and forage. The goal of brine spill remediation is to remove or minimize salts in the soil.

North Dakota Manure Fertilizer Use Recommendations - NM1629
Multiple years of manure fertilizer use research in ND have shown that manure can be used as a fertilizer but there are management considerations. If the manure is used on short season crops such as wheat, some supplemental nitrogen fertilizer is needed. If used on a longer season crop such as corn, manure can be a complete substitution for commercial fertilizer.

Water Quality of Runoff From Beef Cattle Feedlots - WQ1667
Runoff from feedlot may cause surface and groundwater pollution. Knowledge of runoff quality from beef cattle feedlot pens would be useful to design effective management practices to protect water quality. The objective of this bulletin is to share runoff quality measurements from three beef cattle feedlot pen surfaces under North Dakota management and climatic conditions.
