Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations Final Rulemaking – Fact Sheet
Fact Sheet on revisions to the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting requirements and Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards (ELG) for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). This rulemaking is in response to the Waterkeeper decision issued by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in February 2005.
This document proposes a new provision that would allow CAFO operators to voluntarily certify that they do not discharge or propose to discharge and as such have no duty to apply for a permit.
