SOLID WASTE PROCESSING AND DISPOSAL
(Rule 1200-01-07-.13, continued)
The facility must designate and describe in the attachments to the permit-by-rule notification any on-site storage of solid wastes at the land application facility. Any storage must be restricted to containers, bins, lined pits or on paved surfaces, designed for such storage, or other storage provisions approved by the Commissioner. Any lagoons/surface impoundments must be of an engineered design. Such design must include a liner and groundwater monitoring system
capable of engineering Division as approval.

The facility must not be located in a floodplain unless it is demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Commissioner that the land application area is operated and maintained to prevent washout of any solid waste.
The facility shall not be located in wetlands.
If a facility is proposed in an area of highly developed karst terrain, the applicant must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Commissioner that the facility will not cause any significant degradation to the local groundwater resources.
The facility must be located such that the waste application boundaries are greater than:
500 feet from a dwelling;
500 feet from any domestic water supply well;
100 feet from a stream;
1000 feet from a public water supply well; and
20 feet from a public roadway.
There must be a vegetative buffer zone between the facility and any wet weather
conveyance, stream, or karst feature.
Analytical data for each of the waste streams proposed for land application must be submitted to the Division. The analytical data must completely characterize the wastes proposed for land application.
Operational Standards – In addition to satisfaction of the performance and design criteria detailed in subparagraphs (2)(a) and (2)(b) of this rule, land application facilities must be operated in compliance with Tennessee rule 1200-01-07-.13.
Facilities at which wastes are to be land applied for agronomic benefits, must demonstrate that the rate at which waste is to be land applied will benefit crop production without exceeding crop nutrient needs or hydraulically overloading the receiving soils.
For wastes which are to be land applied for soil amendment benefits, the facility must demonstrate the amendment value of land application by soil and waste analysis, and that application rates must not exceed the soil amendment needs of, or hydraulically overload the receiving soils.
