Construction and interim permits

Construction short form (CSF) permits authorize construction of animal-holding or manure-storage areas for feedlots with 300 or more animal units. Interim permits are issued to feedlots to address pollution hazards.  A feedlot does not require these permits if it has applied for coverage under a NPDES or SDS permit.
