I almost missed this because the heading said 'due March 17' - so I've sent it again to arbird in case somebody else misunderstands the due date.

The due date for comments has been extended to April 6.  To really be effective, send a comment to ADEQ and to the Governor's office.  If you've done that much work it would be great to let the Buffalo River Watershed Alliance know you took action. 
email to the Governor

Subject: Fwd: Buffalo River  

Subject: Buffalo River  In 2012 the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality quickly and quietly issued a permit to allow C & H Hog Farm to build a facility on the Buffalo River watershed.  This "factory farm" keeps over 6000 pigs in confined quarters.  The waste produced is sprayed over hundreds of acres along Big Creek, a Buffalo River tributary. C & H is now applying for a new state permit which would supercede a federal permit that required regular review and a five year expiration.  The state permit requires no review and no expiration and would add an additional 599 acres to the spray area.  Research has shown that Big Creek is already showing higher levels of nitrates downstream from the C & H fields than above. The Buffalo River Watershed Alliance insists the original permit was improperly and hastily approved.  For this, and the very real threat of pollution to the Buffalo, they are asking ADEQ to deny the new permit.  The period for public comment on renewing the C & H permit ends March 17.  If you would like to help protect the Buffalo River by removing this facility from its totally inappropriate location you can make comments to the ADEQ at <Water-Draft-Permit-Comment...>  and to Govenor Asa Hutchinson at the website   I am sorry for the short notice.  I didn't have all the information until recently.  Please feel free to pass this on to friends.  This may be our last chance. Phyllis Anderson
