Nebraska Administrative Code
Section 130-7-005

Current through March 28, 2023

For NPDES permitted large beef, dairy, heifer, swine, poultry, horse, sheep, and veal concentrated animal feeding operations that land apply manure, litter, or process wastewater, discharges from the land application areas under control of the NPDES permittee are subject to compliance with the following:

005.01 Implement a nutrient management plan prior to December 31, 2006, or at the time of reissuance of the NPDES permit, for land under the NPDES permittee control. Land under the NPDES permittee control includes;

005.01A Owned areas;

005.01B Rented or leased areas including land rented or leased solely for land application area; and

005.01C Any area where the NPDES permittee stockpiles, spreads, or delivers waste to, or otherwise controls the timing, amount, or rate of land application.

005.02 Comply with the terms of the submitted Nutrient Management Plan. The terms of the nutrient management plan are the information, protocols, best management practices, and other conditions in the nutrient management plan determined by the Director to be necessary to meet the requirements of Chapter 14 of this Title. This includes, but is not limited to, protocols for land application of manure, litter, and process wastewater and shall contain all fields available for land application, field-specific rates of application, and any timing limitations of land application. Manure, litter, and process wastewater may only be land applied at field-specific application rates, calculated using a linear or narrative rate approach, that minimize phosphorus and nitrogen transport from the field to waters of the state and comply with the technical standards established in Chapter 14;

005.03 Analyze manure, litter, and process wastewater at least once a year for nitrogen and phosphorus content. Analyze soil at each application site for nitrogen content prior to the first application of any manure, litter, or process wastewater and then at least annually thereafter when used for application. Analyze soil at each application site for phosphorus content prior to the first application of any manure, litter, or process wastewater and then at least once every 5 years thereafter if used anytime in the 5 years for land application. The results of these analyses are to be used in determining application rates for manure, litter, and other process wastewater;

005.04 Periodically inspect equipment used for land application of manure, litter, or process wastewater for leaks;

005.05 Maintain setback distances during land application practices in compliance with Chapter 9; and

005.06 Maintain the records onsite as specified in Chapter 12.
