As per the EPA orders, Chino area dairies will control dairy manure waste and other pollutants from reaching local waterways.

As part of its inspection, EPA found the dairies have failed to build or maintain controls necessary to prevent manure and other contaminants from discharging into waterways, to take reasonable steps to minimize or prevent discharges.

EPA also found the failure to develop and implement engineered waste management plans and to conduct proper routine inspections of the facility.

Inspections to evaluate permit compliance at dairies are an ongoing focus of the EPA and the Regional Water Quality Control Board.
