Implementation Guidance on CAFO Regulations--CAFOs That Discharge or Are Proposing to Discharge
EPA promulgated revised regulations for CAFOs in 2008 to require that CAFOs that discharge or propose to discharge must seek coverage under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. The rule also clarifies that a CAFO proposes to discharge if it is designed, constructed, operated, or maintained such that a discharge will occur. This document provides guidance for CAFO owners and operators and NPDES permitting authorities for evaluating whether a CAFO discharges or proposes to discharge (EPA-833-R-10-006).
