Indiana CAFO Permits on Public Notice

The following table(s) lists pending livestock operation permits on public notice in Indiana. Public notices are government notices of public comment periods and major projects that may impact the public.

Use your voice to alert the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) of your thoughts on industrial livestock facilities by submitting public comments and requesting public hearings.

This table is updated bi-monthly. We will do our best to give ample notice for every pending permit. However, given the nature of public notices and our capacity we will, unfortunately, miss some permits on public notice. Last updated: November 2023
