|Description||The purpose of these guidelines is to provide guidance for effective control of fugitive dust emissions at Confined Cattle Feeding Operations (CCFO). Components of the purpose are:
• To achieve sufficient control of fugitive dust emissions and fallout from beef cattle feedlots to ensure compliance with State laws and regulations.
• To achieve dust control by describing a menu of best management practices (BMPs) for cattle feedlots, which will be, implemented using flexible, site-specific fugitive dust control plans (FDCPs).
• To clarify what constitutes “reasonable precautions to prevent” emissions of fugitive dust as required by WAC 173-400-040(3) and WAC 173-400-040(8)(a).
• To help feedlot owners and operators on effective management of fugitive emission control measures, and provide a means by which cattle feedlots can demonstrate that they are taking reasonable precautions to protect the quality of Washington’s air.
