EPA Public Meeting On CAFO Inspections In Nebraska

EPA Region 7 representatives will host a public informational meeting for livestock producers about the Agency’s inspection program for concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) on Monday, July 2, in Lexington, Nebraska. EPA Region 7’s inspections are part of an increased national emphasis on reducing discharges of pollutants from CAFOs into rivers and streams.

Topics at the meeting include:
  • selection of CAFOs for inspection,
  • aerial overflights to assess CAFOs,
  • winter feeding areas,
  • manure stockpiling and
  • nutrient management plans.
There will be an opportunity for attendees to interact with EPA officials during a question-and-answer session.
