Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO)



Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO)


The Delaware National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) CAFO program is implemented and overseen jointly by DNREC and Delaware Department of Agriculture under United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). The Delaware Department of Agriculture is the primary and initial point of contact with the regulated community including conducting inspections, collecting necessary documents, and reviewing Nutrient and Animal Waste Management Plans. The final permit is issued by DNREC, with the assistance of the Delaware Department of Agriculture.

To determine if you meet the criteria under the CAFO regulations, refer to the CAFO Fact Sheet.

To start your permit application, contact the Nutrient Management Program.
