Best news thus far in 2018. Thanks to all that have played a role in correcting this blunder.

The ADEQ has been a joke for a number of years, they have been known to pick on people trying to do the right thing and then in the case of the Hog Farm give away the moon... Lots of good people have either quit or been run off from this agency over the years... Maybe they are finally going to do something right.....

While I agree that ADEQ is partially responsible, the review process began with the USDA's Farm Service Agency, a little fact that MM has never picked up on. Since C&H is agriculture (hog) related, it has the backing of the most powerful lobby in the state, agriculture and the Farm Bureau. Although C&H is called a farm, it is big agri-business or some would call it a commercial feedlot. I would also disagree with MM, the state did allow it, but they did not create it.
