CAFO Roadshow

March 3, 2017

We recommend that farms review the new permits in advance so you can fully take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and receive clarification.

The ECL Permit is for farms that can demonstrate "no discharge" by operating and maintaining BMPs to prevent a discharge up to a 100-year, 24-hour storm event. A copy of the ECL Permit can be found here. A copy of the ECL Permit Fact Sheet can be found here.

The CWA Permit requires a public noticing component. A copy of the CWA Permit can be found here. A copy of the CWA Permit Fact Sheet can be found here.

More information on the CAFO permits can be found here.

The new permits both incorporate the Cornell Revised Winter and Wet Manure Spreading Guidelines, which may also be helpful to review in advance. 

Please Note for Non-Farmers:
The focus for the CAFO Road Show is to offer the best environment for farmers and CAFO planners to hear directly from DEC about permit changes and allow them to ask questions that will improve their understanding to select the best permit for their operation and to optimize compliance.

We ask that agri-service and agency staff who are not directly involved with CAFO planning or current implementation with CAFO farms limit attendance at the four Roadshow events where farmers and their key conservation advisors are the target audience. We will place such agribusiness and agency staff on a waiting list for attendance, until we have a better sense of space and notify you before the event.

As an alternative, the NYS Conservation District Employees Association is offering a CAFO Update session at the Water Quality Symposium in March. This opportunity will allow more time for discussion and questions and is recommended for additional staff to learn more about the CAFO permits (to register: 

Advance registration is required for attendance to ensure the locations can accommodate everyone. Please see deadlines below for each event. Space could be limited in some locations, so please register early. DO NOT call the locations to register. Register online or call New York Farm Bureau at 1-800-342-4143 and be prepared to provide details of who is coming and which event you will attend.
