The North Carolina Division of Environmental Management revised their 1985 report on animal operations and water quality to include recommendations that could bring about an increase in the number of North Carolina animal operations designated “concentrated” and thereby potentially subject to National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit regulations. The recommended changes would also result in better data for determining the impact animal operations have on the state’s water quality.
