Turkey Feeding Operation

Various Locations | Food + Industrial

Overview

ISG has provided siting for dozens of poultry feeding operations, each of which requiring innovative site planning and design.


Opportunity

Siting long feeding operations buildings that maintain good surface drainage with efficient access is a challenge in any topography. In addition, meeting state-established separation distances, county zoning requirements, bio-security, and pest control systems, as well as avoiding drainage district tile systems makes siting a facility a complex process.

Solution

With successful siting for over three dozen turkey feeding operations, ISG has performed the topographic surveys necessary to prepare site grading plans and specifications. Building elevations are selected to allow for adequate drainage design and a balanced cut and fill for earthwork quantities. Many of these sites require up to a four-foot elevation stair step between barns to control the volume of earthwork. Assisting the producer with the paperwork and permits involved in the construction phase includes a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) required for the stormwater permit for construction sites with greater than one acre of disturbed land.

ISG’s designs ensure that producers are able to achieve production goals while meeting state environmental regulations. Proper site layout provides adequate vehicle access while also managing stormwater runoff. The sites also have sufficient storage for litter and mortality composting between land application periods.
