There are groups out there that help communities organize and face the threat of a CAFO or CAO (Concentrated Animal Operation).
Specific recommendations included initiating "steps necessary to tighten" the sections of the regulations dealing with requirements on the importer of manure from a concentrated animal operation. The committee also recommended the State Conservation Commission consider written agreements among producers, haulers, brokers and importers of manure, and at a minimum require nutrient balance sheets on importing farms.
In 2002, the State Conservation Commission, the 11-member government body responsible for implementing and enforcing the Nutrient Management Act, began its required five-year review of the density-based criteria for defining a concentrated animal operation.

While this Act deals only with regulation of nutrient management on concentrated animal operations, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources is charged with assessing the extent of the impact of other potential nonpoint sources of nutrient pollution on the environment, including
