Michigan DEQ CAFO Permit Update





No news is good news.  As you are probably aware, the CAFO general permit expires on April 1, 2015. The DEQ is still working on developing the new version of the CAFO permit. We have not seen any of the proposed changes, but we have not heard any discussion about any major changes yet either.

Prior to issuing the permit, the DEQ will public notice it on the internet, and that will be our opportunity to comment on any changes that have been made. Based on discussions we have had with staff at the DEQ office, we expect that before the end of the year, the DEQ will send out letters to remind permit holders that their permit expires and they will include instructions on how to renew their applications. CJD Farm Consulting would be happy to assist you when that time arises, so give us a call.
