  • A CAFO permit (NPDES permit)
  • Permit regulates surface and ground water
  • Required to have an ODA approved AWMP
  • On-site inspections with Livestock Water Quality
    Specialist one time/year
  • Oregon is the ONLY state in the nation that has
    this combination of water quality standards

BOOK WORK
  • Understand and implement the AWMP
  • A large document
  • Completed because it was required
  • Must get producers to understand the AWMP and
    implement practices according to AWMP
  • Must get producers to get employees to understand
    the AWMP and implement practices according to AWMP

BOOK WORK
  • Record Keeping
  • Producers keeps several records on the farm
  • Getting them to keep one more set of records
  • Manure application and export
  • If a Large Federal, additional records are

CROSS MEDIA IMPACT
  • Do water quality best management practices impact
    air quality or vice versa?

TECHNOLOGY
  • Expensive
  • Is the investment feasible for herd size
  • Some technologies are not very well proven

    of technology

HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THE FOLLOWING?
  • Maintain a process/program to have AWMPs
    written/updated
  • Get producers to know the details of their AWMP
  • Get producers to complete the required
    documentation
