Nobody should have to live with feces or urine in their air and drinking water. Yet this is an unfortunate reality near industrial-scale hog farms that spray untreated waste into the surrounding environment, posing huge health risks for nearby communities.

To adequately protect public health, NC DEQ must ensure new permitting requirements for CAFOs include:

  1. Transparent recordkeeping & reporting
  2. Safer waste management technology
  3. Monitoring of health & environmental impacts
