The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), Division of Water Resources, Surface Water Discharges Section and the Department of Agriculture, Nutrient Management Program, hereby give notice that the following farms have applied for coverage under National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) Permit Number DE 5000N/11, to operate a Large, Medium, or Designated Poultry CAFO  without land application of manure under Section 9.5 of the DNREC’s Regulations Governing the Control of Water Pollution. 

Large CAFO’s are characterized as having equal to or greater than 125,000 chickens (C), 82,000 laying hens (L), or 55,000 turkeys (T).  Medium CAFO’s are characterized as having 37,500-124,999 chickens, 25,000-81,999 laying hens, or 16,500-54,999 turkeys.  Designated CAFO’s are determined by the department and can be any size.  Chicken manure is not land applied by these farms and is exported off the farm.  Manure is stored and mortalities are handled in a manner to prevent contamination of waters of the state.  All farms have Animal Waste Management Plans that meet the criteria of the CAFO Regulations.  Manure, litter, and/or process wastewater discharges are prohibited from the production area.  There are currently no known existing production area discharge points at these farms.  Any discharges of manure, litter, and/or process wastewater that may occur would be new discharges and are required to be reported to the departments.
