Title: Final report of the Technology Assessment Panel (TAP) Sub-Program of the Soil and Water Environmental Enhancement Program
Author: Norry, H. G.
Abstract: The Soil and Water Environmental Enhancement Program (SWEEP) is a coordinated federal/provincial program to deal with soil conservation and water quality. As part of a Canada/US Agreement to reduce the phosphorous loading to Lake Erie, Canada accepted the goal of reducing its phosphorous loading to the lake by 300 tonnes per year, 200 of which would be from agricultural sources. The reduction of 200 tonnes was the responsibility of SWEEP. The beginning of the SWEEP program was announced in August 1985 and the agreement was signed in May, 1986. Several sub-programs were established under SWEEP. One of the sub-programs, the Technology Assessment Panel, was responsible for commenting on technology - needs, availability, usefulness, strengths, weaknesses, erroneous perceptions, research needs, research results, etc. This report provides an overview of TAP including the purpose, efforts and recommendations of the Panel.
