The Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE) proposes issuance of a new General Permit under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) to prevent discharges to surface waters. CAFOs within the State of Nebraska that confine only cattle, either in open lots or under roof, are eligible for coverage.

The public comment period will run from July 19, 2019 through August 19, 2019.

The draft permit, fact sheet and other public information are available for review online at http://dee.ne.gov/ under Public Notices or at NDEE’s Lincoln Office (address below) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays, excluding holidays. To request copies of the draft permit and other information, call (402) 471-2186 (TDD call operator at 711); FAX: (402) 471-2909; or E-Mail: ndeq.records@nebraska.gov. Alternate format materials are available with advance request.

All comments received during the public comment period will be considered in the final decision on issuance of this general permit. A request for a public hearing must be submitted in writing, and must state the nature of the issues proposed to be raised at a hearing. A determination to hold a hearing will be based on factual environmental or regulatory considerations.
