[Note:  The North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors has determined, via letter dated December 1, 2005, that preparation of engineering design documents pursuant to this Paragraph constitutes practicing engineering under G.S. 89C.]

(1)           engineering plans for the entire system, including treatment, storage, application, and disposal facilities and equipment except those previously permitted unless those previously permitted are directly tied into the new units or are critical to the understanding of the complete process;

(2)           specifications describing materials to be used, methods of construction, and means for ensuring quality and integrity of the finished product;

(3)           engineering calculations including hydraulic and pollutant loading for each treatment unit, treatment unit sizing criteria, hydraulic profile of the treatment system, total dynamic head and system curve analysis for each pump, and buoyancy calculations; and

(4)           a water balance calculation documenting all inputs and losses, including residuals, demonstrating the system will not discharge to waters.

(c)  Site plans.  If required by G.S. 89C, a professional land surveyor shall provide location information on boundaries and physical features not under the purview of other licensed professions.  Site plans or maps shall be provided to the Division depicting the location, orientation and relationship of facility components including:

[Note:  The North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors has determined, via letter dated December 1, 2005, that locating boundaries and physical features, not under the purview of other licensed professions, on maps pursuant to this Paragraph constitutes practicing surveying under G.S. 89C.]

(1)           a scaled map of the site, with topographic contour intervals not exceeding two feet and showing all facility-related structures and fences within the treatment, storage and disposal areas;

(2)           the location of all wells (including usage and construction details if available), streams (ephemeral, intermittent, and perennial), springs, lakes, ponds, and other surface drainage features within 500 feet of all waste treatment, storage, and disposal site(s) and delineation of the review and compliance boundaries;

(3)           setbacks as required by Rule .1006 of this Section; and

(4)           site property boundaries within 500 feet of all waste treatment, storage, and disposal site(s).

(d)  Property Ownership Documentation shall be provided to the Division consisting of:

(1)           legal documentation of ownership (i.e., contract, deed or article of incorporation);

(2)           written notarized intent to purchase agreement signed by both parties, accompanied by a plat or survey map; or

(e)  Public utilities shall submit a Certificate of Public Conveyance and Necessity or a letter from the NC Utilities Commission to the Division stating that a franchise application has been received.

(f)  For industrial waste, a complete chemical analysis of the typical wastewater to be discharged shall be provided to the Division.  The analysis may include Total Organic Carbon, 5-day Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD5), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Nitrate Nitrogen (NO3-N), Ammonia Nitrogen (NH3-N), Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN), pH, Chloride, Total Phosphorus, Phenol, Ammonia, Total Volatile Organic Compounds, Fecal Coliform, Calcium, Sodium, Magnesium, Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR), Total Trihalomethanes, Toxicity Test Parameters and Total Dissolved Solids. Nitrates, Total Nitrogen, Calcium, Sodium, Magnesium, Total Volatile Organics, Total Coliforms and Total Dissolved Solids.

(g)  A detailed explanation as to how the residuals will be collected, handled, processed, stored and disposed of shall be submitted to the Division.
