Receipt of Application for a Land Application Permit

A renewal application for a nonsite-specific land application permit was received by the Solid Waste Permits Section of the Indiana Department of Environmental Manage-ment (IDEM) on Septem-ber 8, 2009 from REGION-AL CONSERVATION SER-VICES, 12325 Ski Circle, Loogootee, Indiana, Permit No. IN LA 000716. The applicant is requesting a permit that will allow them to accept and blend biosolids and industrial waste products at their CANNELBURG BIOSO-LIDS FACILITY. The blended biosolids will be land applied at agronomic rates to farmland located in DAVIESS and MARTIN COUNTIES. A copy of the application is on file at the Washington Carnegie Public Library and the Shoals Public Library for review. Questions concerning this application can be directed to Ralph Perry, Regional Conserva-tion Services, LLC, at (219) 733-2552. This application was submitted in accordance with Indiana Administrative Code 327 IAC 6.1.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Indiana Depart-ment of Environmental Management (IDEM) recognize and encourages the beneficial use of biosolids through such practices as land application. Upon issuance of a land application permit, permittees are allowed to apply biosolids on qualifying farmland in designated counties, or specific farmland as designated in the permit, with permission of the landowner. A land application permit controls the quality of the biosolids to be applied as well as the yearly and cumulative amount of biosolids which can be land applied to a site.
