EPA Provides Implementation Guidance on CAFO Regulations - CAFOs That Discharge or Are Proposing to Discharge

EPA Provides Implementation Guidance on CAFO Regulations - CAFOs That Discharge or Are Proposing to Discharge

EPA is releasing to the public a guidance document, 'Implementation Guidance on CAFO Regulations - CAFOs That Discharge or Are Proposing to Discharge,' that the Agency has developed to assist in implementing the 2008 Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) rule. In 2008, EPA promulgated revised regulations for CAFOs to require that CAFOs that discharge or propose to discharge must seek coverage under an NPDES permit. The rule also clarifies that a CAFO proposes to discharge if it is designed, constructed, operated, or maintained such that a discharge will occur. This guidance will assist EPA and States with program implementation and assist CAFOs in evaluating whether they discharge or propose to discharge.

The guidance document released today is available at http://www.epa.gov/npdes/caforule.
