The 2011 Legislature passed legislation that created an option for some feedlot owners to receive an SDS permit only; instead of the combination NPDES/SDS permit. The new SDS permit options are currently being developed in response to the legislation. More information will be provided as the permits become available.
Contact MPCA Feedlot Program for details. The requirements are dependent on the nature and complexity of the applicant's facility.
