CAFO WPDES permits applications & NMPs in process

Wisconsin Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WPDES) permits for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) are renewed every five years and may be modified, as needed, during the five year permit term. Nutrient Management Plan (NMP) changes occur as often as needed, but at least annually. Public input is required before the Department of Natural Resources issues a new, renewed or modified WPDES permit or approves substantial modifications to an NMP.
