EPA/WATER RIN: 2040-AF22 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) Reporting Rule 
Abstract: On July 20, 2012, the EPA withdrew the proposal to collect concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) information by rule. Instead, the EPA, where appropriate, will collect CAFO information using existing sources of information, including State NPDES programs, other regulations, and other programs at the Federal, State, and local levels. The EPA believes, at this time, it is more appropriate to obtain CAFO information by working with Federal, State, and local partners instead of requiring CAFO information to be submitted pursuant to a rule. Today's withdrawal does not preclude the Agency from initiating the same or similar rulemaking at a future date. EPA's withdrawal of this proposal does not change any of the NPDES permit requirements for CAFOs.
