A Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan (CNMP) identifies management practices and
conservation actions that aim to ensure both production and natural resource protection goals are
achieved in an animal feeding operation. An Emergency Response Plan (ERP) should be included
as a part of that document. An ERP outlines all foreseeable manure system based emergencies and
the appropriate response for each emergency. Through preparation and implementation of an ERP,
most manure management system emergencies can be avoided. Weather conditions, equipment
failures, management decisions and sometimes improper judgment are factors that can lead to
personnel health or environmental emergencies.
