  • 2011 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) Reporting Rule
  • EPA co-proposes two options for obtaining basic information from CAFOs to support EPA in meeting its water quality protection responsibilities under the Clean Water Act (CWA). The purpose of this co-proposal is to improve and restore water quality by collecting facility-specific information that would improve EPA’s ability to effectively implement the NPDES program and to ensure that CAFOs are complying with the requirements of the CWA.
    Date Published: 10/17/2011

  • This action supplements the June 2006 proposal to revise the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting requirements and Effluent Limitations Guidelines (ELGs) for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). EPA is seeking comment on additional options being considered as part of the Agency's response to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Waterkeeper Alliance et al. v. EPA.
