The Department of Environmental Protection, Environmental Regulation Commission announces a hearing to which all persons are invited.
DATE AND TIME: May 20, 2010, 9:00 a.m.
PLACE: 3900 Commonwealth Blvd., Douglas Building, Conference Room A, Tallahassee, FL
GENERAL SUBJECT MATTER TO BE CONSIDERED: At the December 1, 2009, meeting of the Environmental Regulation Commission (ERC), the ERC passed a motion to continue the rule adoption hearing for revisions to Chapter 62-640, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), to a future ERC meeting. The above scheduled hearing will be a continuation of the hearing to adopt revisions to Chapter 62-640, F.A.C. The Department is proposing to amend Chapter 62-640, F.A.C., which contains regulations for domestic wastewater residuals (biosolids), to improve biosolids land application site accountability and management, address growing nutrient concerns, and support public confidence in the beneficial use of biosolids. While the Department is proposing numerous revisions to Chapter 62-640, F.A.C., the primary proposed changes include requiring site permitting for biosolids land application sites, requiring nutrient management plans, and requiring distributed and marketed Class AA biosolids to be fertilizers.
