Abstract

The Comprehensive Survey involves establishing a baseline inventory of all large CAFOs and medium‐sized AFOs using the Iowa DNR AFO database. All facilities will be subject to a desk‐top assessment and some will also be subject to an on‐site inspection, as described below. Classifying a large or medium‐sized facility as not needing an on‐site inspection means that the desk‐top assessment conducted pursuant to the AFO Desk‐top Assessment SOP or findings from a qualifying prior on‐site inspection is sufficient to support a determination that the CAFO or AFO does not discharge to a water of the U.S.
