CAST PLANNING TOOLS
Logging in to CAST allows users to rapidly develop scenarios for reducing nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment with varying best management practices to streamline environmental planning. Costs are provided so users may select the most cost-effective practices to reduce pollutant loads.
Due to a lapse in appropriations, CAST has limited support. The CAST Team will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. The updates planned for January 3, 2018 will be rescheduled once appropriations are enacted.
