It happens to lie on the flower Creek Watershed, that feeds directly into Lake Michigan. Due to the location of our community our water sources are extremely sensitive to pollution such as Farm sewage runoff, antibiotic-resistant bacteria,high nitrate levels, increased ammonia levels etc; all which have been tracked back to CAFO’s. The  shear increase of waste being introduced into our community by 8,000 pigs total annually, is what will have the most impact. Each pig averages 3 gallons of manure a day for a total of over 1 million gallons of manure per year.

  1. FYI Department of Agricultural oversees Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) which this farm would fall under. Any complaints about plans, possible run off, manure disposal must be investigated. Also Holly Hughes can be contacted to advocate for your community concerns.
