Livestock Manure Operations Wastewater Discharges: Am I Regulated?

If you compost livestock manure that is hauled in from off site, this general permit might cover you. Find out whether you qualify.

You May Qualify for Coverage Under General Permit WQG200000:

IF you discharge wastewater generated from livestock manure composting operations and processes,

AND if you plan to dispose of this wastewater by evaporation or beneficial use by irrigation adjacent to water in the stateExit the TCEQ of Texas.

If you determine, after reading the permit Adobe Acrobat PDF Document, that coverage under this general permit is appropriate, see Applying for Coverage Under General Permit WQG200000 for steps on how to apply.

What This Permit Does Not Cover:

This permit does not authorize discharging or disposing of wastewater generated from livestock manure composting operations that occur at a facility either permitted or otherwise authorized by the TCEQ as a concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO).

This general permit is not for operations where the manure is generated on site. If you have livestock and compost its manure, find out whether your facility should be permitted as a concentrated animal feeding operation.

If you don't qualify for coverage under General Permit WQG200000, you may require an individual permit for any discharge released.
