SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — Maryland is appealing a court decision that said the state must start regulating ammonia air pollution from chicken houses.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports the case is one that could have far-reaching implications for the Eastern Shore’s poultry industry. The court ruling issued last month came in a lawsuit filed by an environmental group over the state’s permit rules for animal feeding operations.
The environmental group argued the rules should include ammonia, a byproduct of chicken waste that can eventually contribute to algal blooms.
