Large-Scale Animal Farms Must Report Waste Releases

Bloomberg reports: 

Large animal farms will be required to report more air pollution from animal waste after the D.C. Circuit April 11 vacated an Environmental Protection Agency rule ( Waterkeeper Alliance v.

EPA , 2017 BL 117866, D.C. Cir., No. 09-1017, 4/11/17 ).

The agency’s Reporting Exemption Rule, finalized in December 2008, exempted owners of concentrated animal feeding operations from some federal air reporting requirements tied to such hazardous substances as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.

The decision will affect the 15,500 CAFOs operating in the U.S., according to numbers from the EPA. A CAFO is a farm that confines more than a certain number of animals—for example, over 1,000 cattle, 2,500 hogs, or 125,000 chickens.
