Feedlot Permit Program

Information for CAFOs applying for coverage under the 2017 General Permit

DENR logoOn April 15, 2017, the revised General Water Pollution Control Permit for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations became effective. Operations with coverage under the existing general permit are required to obtain coverage under the reissued permit. The revised permit allows applicants to apply for coverage under a state permit or an NPDES permit. The department has put together a checklist and flow chart of requirements for applying for coverage under the reissused permit.
