U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) is releasing a video that demonstrates what poultry and egg farms can expect if their farms are inspected by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To ensure the information is accurate and beneficial, USPOULTRY collaborated with EPA personnel to develop and produce the video.
Titled, “Why EPA and the States Inspect Farms,” the video features possible reasons why a farm may be inspected, how the farmer should prepare for the inspection and how the inspection will likely be structured. Additionally, the video provides insight to what inspectors look for when analyzing and addressing issues related to local water quality and provides information on assistance available to poultry and egg producers to address water quality issues.
Kelly Shenk, agriculture advisor for the EPA Region III office, remarked, “Collaborating on this educational video has given us a great opportunity to understand the connection between agriculture and water quality, so we can work together to achieve well-managed farms, thriving agriculture and clean rivers and streams.”
