2 Southeast Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) Data Exchange 2006 Exchange Network Users Meeting San Francisco, CA November 30, 2005

3  Project idea originated in summer 2003  Goal to facilitate data sharing among Southeastern States & EPA R4 Southeastern States & EPA R4  Considered three Regional environmental issues as a pilot  Early recognition that a project in support of the CAFO program information needs was an opportunity to meet a business need and demonstrate early success. History & Background

4 Why CAFOs…

5 R4 States are tracking a considerable amount of data on CAFOs of interest to nearby States & the EPA R4 Office R4 States are tracking a considerable amount of data on CAFOs of interest to nearby States & the EPA R4 Office EPA does not maintain all CAFO data in electronic form. EPA does not maintain all CAFO data in electronic form. EPA has need to access data across States w/in Region to manage the program at a regional level. EPA has need to access data across States w/in Region to manage the program at a regional level. Need for States to collaborate on CAFO issues Need for States to collaborate on CAFO issues Compliance issues Compliance issues Nutrient Management Plans (NMPs) Nutrient Management Plans (NMPs) Access to data across the Region will improve CAFO program management within the States and EPA Access to data across the Region will improve CAFO program management within the States and EPA

6  To establish an Exchange Network Client at EPA R4 for the purpose of sharing State & Federal information on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) with the goal to improve environmental decision-making at both the State & Federal level Project Objective

8 Proposed Outcome 1.Eating & belch-control system to protect ozone layer 2.Shovel for by-product recycling 3.Natural, earth-tone cowhide 4.Safety-tread hoof boots 5.Filtering system to assure drinking water purity in milk production 6.Biodegradable overcoat to satisfy animal rights activists 7.Combination earmuffs & radio for stress reduction 8.Vegetarian diet of no- cholesterol, no-fat crops 9.High-protein, low cost, consumer-friendly beverage dispensers 10.Non-toxic, pesticide-free insect repellant device 11.Udderly soft designer bra for support 12.Gas control system with exhaust scrubbers powered with by-product liquids

9 Information Goals  Improve Data Access = Through the ability to exchange data electronically via the Network utilizing Web Services  Improve Data Quality = Through established standard business rules in the XML schema  Support Better Decisions on environmental issues around Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations

10  Develop a model for the Exchange Network that is capable of querying multiple that is capable of querying multiple Network Nodes to effectively aggregate Network Nodes to effectively aggregate and present CAFO data. and present CAFO data.  This model will serve as a reusable component among Exchange Network tools component among Exchange Network tools to simplify the use of data published to to simplify the use of data published to Nodes and simplify the consumption of Nodes and simplify the consumption of these resources for all Network partners. these resources for all Network partners. Exchange Network Benefits

11 Project Status  Schema Finalized  Includes 18 elements pertaining to CAFO from the ICIS schema  Incorporates shared schema components from the Core Reference Model  Draft Query Service Defined  Parameters:  Latitude and Longitude  Facility Name  Hydrologic Unit Code  Animal Type  State  State Facility Identifier

12 Next Steps  Node Client Prototype Developed and Tested  Node Client Demonstrated to EPA and States  States map DB’s to the approved schema  States stand up query service  Demonstration of Concept for Region 4 Administrator

13 Current Project Partners:  MS DEQ  NC DENR  SC DHEC  EPA R4 CAFO Staff  EPA R4 IM / IT Staff  EPA HQ CDX Staff  EPA Contractors – As Project Dictates
