On Monday, August 3rd, Hurricane Isaias threatened our communities and our waterways. Before Isaias’ arrival, Waterkeeper Alliance issued a press release, Hog and Poultry Waste Threat in NC Has Gotten Worse Since Hurricane Florence>>.
Our Lumber Riverkeeper, Jefferson Currie II, and Waccamaw Riverkeeper, Cara Schildtknecht, are actively monitoring their respective watersheds, along with all of the NC Waterkeepers and Waterkeeper Alliance as part of our NC Pure Farms Pure Waters Campaign>>.
They want you to know what to watch for with CAFOs in your communities when the National Weather Service issues warnings and/or watches (note: the list below is paraphrased from the NC requirements>>).
