Description

more
A facility raising broiler chickens with the following parameters: A broiler CAFO has 37,500 or more birds with dry manure handling, and it discharges or “proposes to discharge” manure, litter, or process wastewater. “Proposes to discharge” means that the facility is designed, constructed, operated, or maintained, such that a discharge to surface waters of the State WILL occur. A broiler MAFO has 125,000 or more birds with dry manure handling, and it does not discharge or “propose to discharge” manure, litter, or process wastewater. If a broiler operation with dry manure handling has less than 125,000 birds and does not discharge or “propose to discharge,” it is probably not a MAFO unless MDE designates it as one. Reasons for designating a MAFO include the type or location of animal waste storage or animal access to surface water is likely to cause a discharge of pollutants to ground or surface waters of the State. Facilities that are under this limit may have been designated by the MDE or EPA to register or may have registered voluntarily. This list includes registered CAFOs and MAFOs only.
