 Unified National Strategy for Animal Feeding Operations
Public Listening Sessions

 The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will conduct 11 public listening sessions where interested individuals can ask questions and provide feedback on the draft Unified National Strategy for Animal Feeding Operations. This national strategy is one of the key actions in the Clean Water Action Plan announced by President Clinton in February 1998.

The public is invited to attend the sessions and attain a better understanding of the draft strategy. After a brief overview of the draft strategy, a question and answer discussion will be held. Those who wish to speak at a session may either make arrangements in advance by calling the contact listed for the session or sign up at the session. Time for each speaker will be limited to allow time for all to be heard.

All are encouraged to provide detailed written comments concerning the draft strategy. Written comments will not be accepted at the sessions, but addressed envelopes will be provided for mailing written comments. Written comments will be accepted through January 19, 1999, and should be sent to the mailing address or e-mail address below:
