Purpose of the meeting
A public hearing to receive comments on proposed amendments to the VPA General Permit for Poultry Waste Management (9VAC25-630). The proposed amendments will establish requirements for end-users of poultry waste to ensure that poultry waste is being used in a manner in which state waters are being protected and nutrients losses are being reduced and that these reductions can be measured. The proposed amendments include provisions regarding transferred off-site poultry waste used for land application by another entity other than the poultry grower. These provisions will establish end-user requirements such as: land application record keeping, poultry waste storage, land application timing and rates, land application buffer requirements. These provisions will also include the option of coverage under a general permit for a poultry waste end-user or poultry waste broker if non-compliance with the requirements of the proposed technical regulations found in 9VAC25-630-60, 9VAC25-630-70 and 9VAC25-630-80 is determined. The proposal appears in the Virginia Register of Regulations on June 22, 2009. The public comment period begins on June 22, 2009 and ends on August 21, 2009. An information briefing will begin at 6:30 p.m.
