DEP Invites Comments On Annual Reports From Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations

The Department of Environmental Protection published notice in the June 29 PA Bulletin inviting comments on annual reports submitted by Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations under the PAG-12 Water Quality General Permit.
Submission of a CAFO annual report serves as a CAFO's notice of intent (NOI) to remain covered under PAG-12. 
The Department is reviewing annual reports to ensure that CAFOs continue to remain eligible for coverage under PAG-12.  Click Here to search a list of CAFOs submitting annual reports.
When the Department determines that a CAFO remains eligible for coverage under PAG-12, the Department will publish notice of the determination in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. 
When the Department determines that a CAFO is no longer eligible for PAG-12, the Department will require the CAFO to submit a complete application for an individual NPDES permit.
Interested persons may review annual reports at the Department's regional office serving the county where a CAFO is located.
Public comments will be accepted for 30 days.  Read the entire PA Bulletin notice for more information.
For general information on CAFOs or annual reports, contact the Department's Bureau of Clean Water at 717-787-5017.
Visit DEP’s Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations webpage for more information on this program.
