The True Cost of CAFOs: Impacts on Your Wallet and Your Health
On September 12, 2023, IEC hosted the webinar "The True Cost of CAFOs: Impacts on Your Wallet and Your Health." During the presentation, IEC Water Program Director Alicia Vasto and Staff Attorney Michael Schmidt reviewed IEC's efforts over the past three years, filing petitions and comments to improve rules regulating concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in Iow to protect recreational and drinking water, and public health.
In this webinar, IEC staff share background on the rulemaking process, where the current rulemakings stand, and what IEC has uncovered about the true costs of CAFOs for Iowans.
