Legislation in the state of Pennsylvania has been passed that requires all animal operations that produce or use manure to have a written plan outlining how the manure is used, or disposed of. The Washington County Conservation District is available to help owners understand the regulations, and to write a plan for their operation.
Contact Tom Ulrich or Hannah Hoblitzell at the office. They can be reached by phone at: 724-206-9446, or by email at: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. The District is available to work with any operator, no matter what size. If you would like help creating a plan, or have questions about the regulations feel free to contact us here at the office any time. There is no cost for our assistance, and we are always happy to help.
