Dear Director Marks,

The integrity of the waterways is at stake, and urgent action is required. The continued use of hog waste lagoons poses an unacceptable risk to the environment, aquatic ecosystems, and public health.

Overwhelming evidence has demonstrated the destructive consequences of these lagoons, including water contamination and ecological harm. It is incumbent upon us to prioritize the well-being of the water resources and communities by adopting more responsible waste management practices readily available today.

Despite the availability of modern, environmentally responsible waste management alternatives, the continuation of hog waste lagoons raises grave concerns about the commitment to safeguarding precious water resources. It is crucial that the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality takes decisive action to protect the waterways and environment by discontinuing the use of hog waste lagoons.

We implore you to take immediate action to halt the use of hog waste lagoons in Arkansas and instead embrace sustainable alternatives that will safeguard the environment for current and future generations.
