Swine Industry Opposes Delegating Animal Waste Management Plan Approval to Conservation Districts

Record #:
At the fourth of six public hearings on proposed changes to state rules governing non-discharging waste disposal systems, representatives of the swine industry pleaded the need to keep local politics out of animal waste regulation. Strong local opposition to animal industry operations was evident at the hearing. Soil and Water Conservation Districts were urged to consider the issue of environmental equity in regulating animal operations.
