Proposed Revisions to NPDES CAFO Rule

June 29, 2006

Proposed Revisions to NPDES CAFO Rule

EPA is proposing to revise the NPDES permitting requirements (Section 122) and Effluent Limitations Guidelines (Section 412) for CAFOs in response to the order issued by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Waterkeeper Alliance et al. v. EPA, 399 F.3d 486 (2nd Cir. 2005). This proposed rule responds to the court order while furthering the statutory goal of restoring and maintaining the nation's water quality and effectively ensuring that CAFOs properly manage manure generated by their operations. The proposed rule also responds to the court's remand orders regarding water-quality based effluent limitations (WQBELs) and pathogens.
