Eau Claire County extends moratorium on large-scale livestock farms

Eau Claire County (WQOW) – The Eau Claire County Board voted to extend a moratorium on large-scale livestock farms.

In October, the board voted to impose a six-month moratorium to examine the impact these large farms could have on water quality and other hazards that come from manure runoff. A special work group was tasked with investigating and coming up with suggestions on how to change any ordinances.

That group is asking for two more months to finish all their work. The topic will be revisited in May.
