Confirmed victory

URGENT! Protect horses now! Require Rains Natural Meats to apply for a site-specific waste water permit that is open for public comment and a public hearing.

Several University studies have shown that equine process waste water can contain several veterinary drugs that do not degrade in a waste water treatment plant or in the environment if the waste water is land applied.

If Rains processes equine and sends its waste water to the local treatment plant, it is likely these veterinary drugs will not be treated by the plant and will be discharged into the local watershed.  Also, if Rains collects its equine waste water in a lagoon and then applies the waste water to a nearby field, it is likely these veterinary drugs will be released into the environment.
