Monday night at the Lantern Inn at 7:30 Donna Wong Gibbons will give a presentation about this.
She is a public health official in Iowa, her main focus will be on how Cafo's affect water quality.
Since water quality is a huge issue in NE SD, it would be a good idea to come and get information about this.
There is no cost.
This is presented by Plains Justice

Did Donna give you any tips on how producers could compy with the clean water act without a manure laggoon? Size doesn't always matter anymore. Did she address the clean water act at all? From Plains Justice "In 2009, our Public Health Specialist is producing a report summarizing academic research into public health impacts of CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation)-related water pollution, and our staff is evaluating Clean Water Act enforcement at CAFOs in our Northern Plains region. " Did she say how South Dakota's clean water act enforcement is stacking up?
