Will all farms be inspected in the area?

The AFO/CAFO rules state that any farm can be inspected at any time and is a national rule.  The regulations state that all CAFOs will be inspected annually.  This can be done by ADEM or ADAI (Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries).  Each CAFO must get a QCP (Qualified Credentialed Person) to inspect the business each year.  The Soil and Water District, along with the ADAI, have made arrangements to reimburse the producer the cost of these inspections from the QCP, normally $200.00 per year.
