The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is revising and updating the two primary regulations that ensure that manure, wastewater, and other process waters generated by concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) do not impair water quality. EPA's final regulatory changes affect the existing National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) provision and the existing effluent limitations guidelines (ELG) for 'feedlots.' This Economic Analysis (EA) summarizes EPA's analysis of the estimated annual compliance costs and the economic impacts that may be incurred by affected operations that are subject to the final revisions. The report covers financial impacts to CAFOs, potential impacts on processors of livestock and poultry products, and market and other secondary impacts such as impacts on prices, quantities, trade, employment, and output. It also responds to requirements for small business analyses under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) and for cost-benefit analyses under Executive Order 12866 and the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
