The final regulations described in this document include revisions of two regulations that ensure manure, litter, and other process wastewaters for CAFOs do not impair water quality. These two regulations are the NPDES described in Section 2.1 and the ELG for feedlots (beef, dairy, swine, poultry, and veal) described in Section 2.2, which establish the technology-based standards that are applied to CAFOs. Both regulations were originally promulgated in the 1970s. EPA revised these regulations to address changes that have occurred in the animal industry sectors over the last 25 years, to clarify and improve implementation of CAFO permit requirements, and to improve the environmental protection achieved under these rules by ensuring effective management of manure by primarily the largest CAFOs. EPA is not revising the ELG for the horse, sheep and lamb, or duck subcategories.
