The management of animal waste from Animal Feeding Operations (AFO) has become a priority in Florida and throughout the country. AFOs are facilities with large numbers of animals in a confined area. Nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) are the contaminants typically associated with AFOs. The department has developed wastewater rules for AFOs and provides technical assistance to the livestock industry. Animal Feeding Operations regulated under DEP's industrial wastewater program include dairies, poultry, and horse and swine operations. CAFOs are regulated under the NPDES program.
