Will new farms be allowed?

Yes, as long as they meet the existing ADEM buffers.  We want new farms and operations.  Cullman County's agriculture production is one of the justifications for the new reservoir.  Everyone must have a NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) Permit for any construction work that exceeds 1 acre in size.  Cullman County Soil & Water Conservation District can help with these.
