Center-pivot animal waste systems are health risks

The Door County Environmental Council that has been protecting our environment since 1970 would like to indicate our strong opposition to the proposal to allow animal and other waste be utilized through the method of liquid high-pressure spray by central pivot or other method utilizing spray. The directors determined that this practice would violate all of the common constraints that are in place to protect public health and welfare. It is not in the best interests of the citizens who would have to endure living in the area of pivot systems because of health concerns and the general stench that is associated with liquid waste from animal operations.

The known toxins that are contained in the putrid soup that is held in the lagoons are thriving in that environment and to even consider allowing these toxins and microbes to enter the atmosphere seems bordering on ludicrous. The operation of these high-intensity animal ghettos is conducive to mass infection by quick-traveling diseases, along with the natural microbes that are present and thriving exponentially in the contents of the lagoon, makes this concept irrational to human occupancy of surrounding homes and communities.
