Animal Waste Threatening Water Quality
Large-Scale Livestock Farms Cited in Study
Monday, December 29, 1997; Page A04 (of the Post)
DES MOINES, Dec. 28 The staggering amount of animal
waste produced on American farms often pollutes water, and
the risk is growing as more large-scale
livestock operations take hold, according to a new U.S. Senate study.
The study found that the amount of animal manure
produced in the United States is 130 times greater than the
amount of human waste. There are no national standards for
dealing with the animal waste.
For example, a single 50,000-acre hog farm being
built in Utah could potentially put out more waste than the
city of Los Angeles, the study said.
