Travel way back with ECCSCM, to our Stench Alert post for May 19, 2018 of the Van Brunt/Halliwill/New Flevo manure heap on Forrister Rd. (Hazen Creek, S. Branch/Raisin). No containment, manure heaped up in big piles, every time it rains liquid manure runoff flows everywhere. We just posted that one photo but this has been on-going for a few years with no resolution.
Photo below shows manure runoff from those piles (left of photo) ponding around a groundwater wellhead (the white pipe surrounded by corrugated pipe). Polluting the aquifer is a big no-no. Or it should be. That’s why there are setback rules in the CAFO permit that prohibit manure application within 100 ft. Ain’t happening here.
