Universal Citation: 14 CA Code of Regs 17801
Current through Register 2024 Notice Reg. No. 12, March 22, 2024

These standards are generally intended to describe levels of performance expected rather than stating detailed requirements; wherever possible, persons responsible for management of manures and agricultural wastes shall be permitted flexibility of approach in meeting the objectives set by the standards. Where the phrase "as approved by the Enforcement Agency" is used, it is contemplated that, in most instances, the operator will propose a method, physical improvement, management modification or other appropriate means to comply with a standard to enable approval by the Enforcement Agency (as opposed to the Enforcement Agency specifying the exact means of compliance). These standards are intended only to eliminate excessive vectors or other adverse public health/well-being effects associated with any agricultural operation.

It is the intent of these standards to promote conditions under which agricultural operations and residential or public use of properties can coexist.
