This Article argues that the revised federal provisions governing potential pollutants from concentrated animal feeding operations do little to advance administrative and enforcement efforts. While the new provisions offer significant improvements for identifying which animal feeding operations may be regulated as concentrated animal feeding operations, they do not address major enforcement issues. The government’s failure to administer and enforce existing regulations undermines efforts to regulate more animal feeding operations or to impose more comprehensive regulations. To achieve greater equity, and possible to augment the long-term viability of agriculture, the EPA must direct more attention to helping the state administer and enforce existing regulations.
