NRCB continues to see unauthorized construction
The Natural Resources Conservation Board (NRCB) continues to see increased cases of unauthorized construction at confined feeding operations (CFOs). The Agricultural Operation Practices Act prohibits construction of a CFO, a manure storage facility or a manure collection area, before required permits are issued. Unauthorized construction is a serious offence and can result in penalties that range from enforcement orders to prosecution. In addition, operators may incur additional costs in addressing unauthorized construction issues. More information is available here.
