I I Confined animal feeding operations in Do-Icy County who are not required to have a state or federal water quality permit are advised of the opportunity to receive technical assistance through the Donley County Soil and Water Conservation District to develop a site specific water quality management plan to prevent or minimize the potential of their operation contributing to a non- point source pollution problem. "The advantage of participat- ing in this program is that g a operator voluntarily develops and maintains a site specific water quality management plan (WQMP) through our district and has that plan certified by the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB), the operator will be compliant with state water quality law and exempt from other state regulatory processes regard- hag nonpoint source discharge of pollutants," said Dick Bode chair- man of the Douley County SWCD.

We have a lot of comments of what a clean and neat town we have. If we keep our streets and highway clean, that will attract more people, which will help our businesses!" Business of the Week by Shelley Tongate Th, weeks featured business i Poor Boy's Antiques, owned by Keith and Patricia Floyd. They have owned the store for one year, and their business is progressing well. The store is run by Bobbie Floyd, and other family members work whenever possible. Johnny and Terri Floyd, and Lynn and Terry Floyd help with the buying and selling of the mer- chandise. The boys and Eddie have always had an interest in going to auctions and hunting for junk. They have all made Poor Boy's Antiques what it is today, and will continue to bring in anti- ques, plus many other interesting items. Poor BOy's Antiques offers a good selection of Roseville vases and they carry a lot of primitives. They also have old clocks and vic- torlas, radios, and just a little bit of everything. Bobbie states, "I would love to see more antique stores, and to see all of these vacant buildings filled up. We attract a lot of people, for instance, in one day we had people from Seattle retain their certification," added Mr. Bode. In explaining a water quality management plan Bode said that a WQMP includes appropriate land treatment practices, production practices, management measures, technologies or any combination to achieve a level of pollution preven- tion or abatement. S.B. 503, which has passed in the last regular session of the texas Legislature names the TSSWCB as the lead agency in Texas for ac- tivities relating to abating agricul- ture and silvicultural nonpoint source pollution. The TSSWCB is responsible for assuring that individual water quality management plans comply with state water quality standards established by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commis- sion. "As a result each WQMP developed, maintained and imple- mented by a landowner or operator through a SWCD must meet rules and criteria adopted by the TSSWCB," said Bode. "With a little fine tuning and certification of an existing soll and water conservation plan for a con- fined animal feeding operation, a producer might find that his or her operation will adequately meet state water quality goals," said Mr. Bode. Best management practice standards will be based on criteria in the current USDA Soil Conser- vation Service field office technical guide for our district Mr. Bode 00spel Singing Planned The 1st Assembly Of God Church will have their 4th Sunday Gospel singing July 24th at 6 p.m. Everyone is invited to come and take part in the activity.
