Why Now

CAFO Reports Spreading 1 Million Gallons of Raw Manure but Really Spreads 2.9 Million

State laws for CAFOs rarely protect communities from water and air pollution. Enforcement is
based on self-reporting as these huge factories attempt to manage thousands of animals.
Overflowing manure pits, bursting pipes and broken pumps are inevitable. Any enforcement
happens after the fact, most commonly sparked by fed-up whistleblowers.


CAFOs in Wisconsin (Two Current Examples):

Emerald Sky CAFO in St. Croix County Spills 275k Gallons of Manure

Wakker CAFO in Kewaunee Under Reports Manure Spreading by 1.9 Million Gallons
