An application has been filed with the Natural Resources Conservation Board for proposed changes at a confined feeding operation in the MD of Willow Creek.

The application has come from the Cayley Hutterite colony.

They want to change the layout of permitted pens on the site.

They're also looking at changing the location and dimensions of the permitted catch pond and extending the deadline for construction until the end of November.

A written response can be filed with the NRCB by anyone deemed directly affected by the plan.

Written responses may be posted on the NRCB site as they are public documents and not confidential.

They will also be sent to the applicant for their response.

It must be in by 4:30 on August 31.
