Animal Waste - VPDES Permit Minor Modifications

Subsection G of 9VAC25-31-400 provides for a minor permit modification to incorporate changes to the terms of a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation's (CAFO’s) nutrient management plan (NMP) that has been revised in accordance with the requirements of subdivision C 5 of 9VAC25-31-130. Provided that the terms of the NMP are not considered substantial, in accordance with subdivision 5 c of 9VAC25-31-130, the terms of the NMP can be incorporated into the permit. The regulation does not provide for a public comment period for minor modifications. The VPDES CAFO permits listed below were modified to incorporate the terms of the NMP and each modification is minor.  These modifications are considered non-substantial because the NMP has not changed with respect to the following substantial changes: land application areas; maximum field-specific annual rates of application or maximum amounts of nitrogen and phosphorus; crops and corresponding field-specific rates of application; or an increase in the risk of nitrogen and phosphorus transport from the field to State waters.  The revised NMPs were reviewed and approved by the Department of Conservation and Recreation as required by the permit and regulation and each are available for public review.
