SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) is proposing to approve a substantial change to an existing Medium CAFO NPDES Permit Registration for Wilsonview Dairy Inc, a dairy facility operated by Derrick Josi.
Mr. Josi is requesting to combine the CAFO registration of an existing Medium CAFO (MA# 1000029) located at 130 Donaldson Road, Tillamook, with an existing Medium CAFO (MA#63526), at 2470 Olson Road N, Tillamook. Both facilities are in Tillamook County. Combining these two operations and increasing the permitted animal numbers will change the size designation to a Large, Tier I CAFO. Both existing CAFOs are registered to the NPDES General Permit 01-2016, that was administratively extended on Feb. 28, 2021.
The CAFO National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General Permit 01-2016 regulates the manure, litter, and process wastewater generated by CAFOs to ensure that CAFO activities do not harm water quality.
