Ag Program


For facilities that fail to correct deficiencies in their operation or that fail to have an approved animal facility management plan, the Bureau of Water’s Enforcement Division can be called upon to address the problem through enforcement action. The enforcement process for agricultural facilities is the same process that is used for all wastewater facilities. Types of enforcement actions that can and have been taken against agricultural facilities include notices of violations, enforcement conferences, consent orders, and administrative orders. Prosecution in State or Federal Court is also available as appropriate. Fines for civil violations can be up to $10,000 per day per violation while criminal penalties can be up to $25,000 per day per violation and/or imprisonment.
