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).
