What is proposed?
Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) is proposing to approve a substantial
change to an Animal Waste Management Plan (AWMP), as described in S.1 of the OR
Confined Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System (NPDES) General Permit #01-2009 (CAFO Permit No. 01-2009), for
an existing Large Concentrated CAFO dairy, AJ Dairy LLC. The CAFO is located in
Mount Angel, OR, 97362, Marion County, and is registered to CAFO Permit No.
01-2009 under Master Address No. 63100.
substantial change to the AWMP consists of the addition of land application
The CAFO NPDES General Permit #01-2009 regulates the manure, litter, and process waste water generated by CAFOs to ensure that CAFO activities do not harm water quality. For more information on this CAFO, see the Animal Waste Management Plan (AWMP).
