SECTION .0300 - CLASSIFICATION

 

15A NCAC 08F .0301        CLASSIFICATION OF ANIMAL WASTE

MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

(a)  The Certification Commission shall classify animal

waste management systems based on the types of structures and nonstructural

practices serving a feedlot that provide for the collection, treatment,

storage, or land application of animal waste.

(1)           Type A: These animal waste management

systems generally include the following structures and nonstructural components

that provide for the collection, treatment, storage and land application of

animal waste and primarily rely on an anaerobic lagoon and soil/plant systems

for the treatment of animal waste:  anaerobic lagoon; pumps, pipes and

associated appurtenances that convey the waste from point of generation to

final treatment/disposal site; flushing systems; solids separation equipment;

irrigation equipment; and land application site and crops.  Type A animal waste

management systems are generally used to treat waste generated by monogastric

animals which produce a low-fiber waste.

(2)           Type B:  These animal waste management

systems generally include the following structures and nonstructural components

that provide for the collection, treatment, storage and land application of

animal waste and primarily rely on soil/plant systems for the treatment of

animal waste:  dry stacks; solids and slurry collection equipment; storage

ponds for the collection of solids and runoff; pumps, pipes and associated

appurtenances that convey the waste from point of generation to final Type B

animal waste management systems are generally used to treat waste generated by

ruminants and other animals which produce a high-fiber waste.

(b)  Animal waste management systems which include

components that are significantly different than the system described in

Subparagraph (a)(1) of this Rule shall be evaluated by the Commission, or its

designee, to determine if the system is subject to classification in accordance

with 15A NCAC 08C .0102(b).
