For beef (including veal) and dairy (including heifer) animal feeding operations, EPA collected data on the amount of manure and wastewater produced, the pollution control and management practices in place, and current land-application practices at beef and dairy operations. Based on these data, EPA identified possible new regulatory requirements that may be imposed on concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) through revision of the effluent guidelines and standards. These new requirements are grouped into seven possible regulatory options. This report describes the methodology used to estimate engineering compliance costs (in 1997 dollars) associated with installing and operating the various technologies and practices that make up the seven regulatory options considered for been and dairy operations.
