Buffalo National River is now threatened by the creation of an industrial hog farm in the middle river area.
One spill could destroy the river for tourism and kill all the fish all the way to the White River. The proposed 5,000 hog capacity farm is the equivalent of adding 20,000 people to the watershed because each hog produces 4 times as much waste as a human. The worst part is that the sewage treatment is minimal.
The hog waste is to be stored in open lagoons designed to withstand a 25 year rain storm, but these storms are much more frequent now due to climate change. This is a very serious threat.
The future of the buffalo national river is at stake. Sign this petition and be a part of the Fight for the Buffalo V2.
