To increase livestock producers’ knowledge and understanding of the Clean Water Act and a number of it’s regulations.
Goals – Provide educational, technical and financial resources, on a strictly voluntary basis, to Wyoming producers in order to:
- Assist all CAFOs that are under a state issued National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Permit (NPDES). Provide the resources necessary to these CAFOs in order to meet all permit conditions and requirements.
- Work with all AFOs with a potentially adverse condition and assist them with correcting that condition to address natural resource concerns.
Assist all other livestock producers who may have a potentially adverse condition, water quality concern or threat .
