Dear Jeff Sauer:
The Department received your plans and specification materials for issuance of a CAFO WPDES permit

2. Animal Unit Calculation Worksheet Form 3400-025A
3. Labeled Aerial Maps
4. Soil Survey Maps
5. EA Questionnaire

Information to assist you and your consultant in preparing and submitting a complete application is

1. 180 Day Manure Storage Calculations & Supporting Documentation
2. Plans and Specifications for Waste Storage Facility
In order to begin processing your application and to conduct a thorough review, all of the above
application materials must be received by the Department. Missing materials can be sent through the
ePermitting system as a Final Application.
If the missing application materials are not received by May 7, 2021, the review process will be placed on
hold and your current application materials will be dismissed in the system. Once an application has been dismissed, a new application containing all required materials must be resubmitted through the
ePermitting System. Until you are issued coverage under a WPDES permit, you may not populate to
1,000 animal units or more. Contact me if you are unable to meet this deadline.
The permit drafter assigned to your operation is Tyler Dix. Please do not hesitate to contact him (phone:
