The underlying issue is that - there is no local control for the development of CAFO's. The only option at this point is to hold a moratorium and take a "time out" before plans move forward. The EPA regulates air emmissions which are being suspended for 3-4 years. IDEM can only regulate storm water run off, and it has been written the department will also suspend regulations until the EPA begins enforcment again. We as a community must protect ourselves and our property. This is the ultimate point. We need our councilmen, and commissioners to pass ordinances and zoning to put these large factories where they belong. They do not belong in a flood plain. For that matter a CAFO of this size should not be built anywhere. The sheer magnatude of a 3500 cow facility is a saturation of pollutants. The soil no matter how you spread or inject it can not handle the amount proposed. In one day 3500 lactating cows will produce the same amount of waste as 300,000 people. Common sense must outweigh greed.
