The section should be updated to authorize the management of pollutants to the owner of the livestock specifically poultry. Most owners of animal feeding operations in the state of Virginia don't own the poultry they are raising. The poultry integrators do. Require the owners of the poultry to comply with the regulations not the farmers or owners of the animal feeding operations. This will be easier for DEQ to regulate and save taxpayers money.
