The Central Valley regulates several types of confined animal facilities, including dairies, feedlots, poultry facilities, and horse facilities. Historically, the Confined Animal Facility Program primarily focused on dairies. However, the Central Valley Water Board recently adopted General Waste Discharge Requirements for poultry facilities and is working on General Waste Discharge Requirements for feedlots to be considered at a future Board meeting.
