Analysis of Current Hog Lagoon Locations and Possible Future Growth in North Carolina

Group 8: Ovik Banerjee, Stephen Bisher, Haley Fail, Casey Stern, Yvonne Yuen


Introduction

  • Hog farms distribution by States in U.S.


Hog Farms in NC

  • Total of 4148 swine lagoons in NC

  • Highest density in Duplin, Sampson, and Wayne counties


Demographic Distribution for NC

Suitability Analysis Purpose

  • To locate possible areas that are suitable for hog lagoons in the study area (Duplin, Sampson, and Wayne counties)

  • Identify existing hog lagoons with possible negative impacts on the environment or human health

  • Analysis is a weighted point scale calculation based on the area’s proximity to:

    • Schools

    • Hospitals

    • Wells

    • Surface water intake points

    • Possible flood hazard

    • Roads


Proximity to Points of Interest

  • Public buildings

    • Schools

    • Hospitals

  • Waters

    • Wells

    • Surface water intake points

  • Accessibility

    • Proximity to roads


  • Worst of the Worst

  • Within 750 meters of streams

  • And

  • Within 3000 meters of a school, hospital, or medical facility

  • Or

  • Within 750 meters of a well
