Hurricane Matthew flooding inundated factory farms in North Carolina, including this poultry operation along the Neuse River, northeast of Indian Springs. Before photo credit: Google Earth. After Hurricane Matthew swept across North Carolina last month, environmental groups took to the air and have released photos showing dozens of factory farms deluged by the storm's heavy rains, spilling potentially toxic animal waste into the state's rivers.
The groups found that flooding partially submerged 36 industrial farms, consisting of barns, and 14 open-air pits containing millions of gallons of manure.

Of the barns, the groups learned, housed chickens—each with as many as 20, birds. A 5,hog farm in Vanceboro, N.
Concentrated animal feeding operations, or CAFOs, have ballooned in North Carolina over the past 30 years, making it the country's second-largest producer of hogs and third of poultry. In , the state had 5. In that same time period, the number of chickens raised for meat went from 60 million to million —but the expansion in poultry production flew largely under the radar.

During the state's CAFO boom, producers built hundreds of facilities in coastal counties, on land prone to flooding—and therefore cheap. But after storms in the s, including Hurricane Floyd in , flooded a number of farms, sending animal waste into waterways and towns, environmental groups began pushing lawmakers to address the problem.
They responded by passing a law that placed a moratorium on new or expanding swine CAFOs in the state. But poultry CAFOs continued to expand and, thanks to some wiggle room in state regulations, have remained largely unregulated.
In 20 years, we've already had two of these events. Under state laws, operations that use "wet waste" systems, as most swine facilities do, are required to have a permit.
