EPA Extends Public Comment Period for Proposed CAFO Rule

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has extended the public comment period for its proposed CAFO (concentrated animal feeding operations) rule in response to requests from the public for additional time to submit comments. The comment period is now extended to January 19, 2012. EPA says that it "proposed the rule in order to more effectively carry out its CAFO permitting programs on a national level and ensure that CAFOs are implementing practices to protect water quality and human health."

For information on the proposed rule, including instructions on how to submit comments, visit this EPA web site.
