Ag Waste
National Summary
Agricultural waste management focuses primarily on the impacts of animal feeding operations (AFOs) and concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), which are a type of AFO, on the nation's surface water and groundwater resources. Therefore, the majority of the regulations for the wastes associated with AFOs and CAFOs are found under the Clean Water Act and related state water regulations. Under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulations, CAFOs that discharge are considered point sources and require NPDES permit coverage.
