Swine Lagoons: In the late 1990s, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Division of Water Quality developed a GIS data set representing point locations of intensive animal operations in North Carolina. In 2003, CGIA used digital ortho photography from 1998 to verify the DWQ points for swine operations and to identify additional swine lagoons and barns visible in the photos. The intention is to display patterns of swine operations for planning and impact analysis without including attributes of the operations. Matching points to DWQ permits, for example, would take more research and processing. Animal Operations: This data contains the locations of all Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) required by the Division of Water Resources (DWR) to obtain an Animal Operations Certificate of Coverage. It does not include all animal farms in the state, particularly dry poultry operations. This data was extracted from the DWR's Basinwide Information Management System (BIMS) database.
