AFBF seeks ruling on farmyard stormwater

The American Farm Bureau Federation on Monday asked the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia to determine that livestock and poultry farmers do not need Clean Water Act discharge permits for ordinary stormwater runoff from their farmyards.

The joint motion, filed by AFBF, West Virginia Farm Bureau and West Virginia poultry farmer Lois Alt, would garner a big win for farmers nationwide if the court rules in their favor.

The motion comes on the heels of the court’s April decision rejecting efforts by the Environmental Protection Agency to dismiss Alt’s case in its entirety in order to avoid defending its legal position in court.
