EPA CAFO meeting being held in Nebraska

June 26, 2012

June 26, 2012, Kansas City, KS – U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 representatives are hosting a July 2 public information meeting for livestock producers about the EPA’s inspection program for concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). The event will take place in Lexington, NE.

EPA Region 7’s inspections are part of an increased national emphasis on ending discharges from CAFOs into rivers and streams.

“It is important for EPA Region 7 staff to be out in the countryside so we can educate communities about the EPA’s job and how inspections support the agency's duties,” said EPA regional administrator Karl Brooks. “That’s why outreach efforts like this one are so important in obtaining the overall goal of protecting human health and water quality.”

Topics at the meeting include selection of CAFOs for inspection, aerial overflights to assess CAFOs, winter feeding areas, manure stockpiling and nutrient management plans. There will be an opportunity for attendees to interact with EPA officials during a question-and-answer session.

WHAT: Meeting about EPA’s inspection program for CAFOs

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday, July 2, 2012

WHERE: Holiday Inn Express, 2605 Plum Creek Parkway, Lexington, Neb., 68850

WHO: EPA Region 7 representatives attending this event will include Josh Svaty, senior adviser to the regional administrator; Stephen Pollard, CAFO compliance and enforcement coordinator; and Trevor Urban, senior CAFO inspector.
