Chapter 790. Sewage Collection and Treatment Regulations

9VAC25-790-150. Sludge management plans.

A. Evaluation. The general purpose of the plan is to facilitate a determination by the department that the management plan developed by the owner in accordance with the department administered VPDES or VPA permit program (9VAC25-31 and 9VAC25-32) presents the necessary technical guidance and regulatory requirements to facilitate the proper management of sewage sludge, including use of biosolids, for both normal conditions and generally anticipated adverse conditions. The evaluation by the department may address methods of controlling and monitoring the quality of sludge by the owner and the means of use or disposal of that sludge by the owner or his agent.

Three types of biosolids storage may be integrated into a complete sludge management plan in accordance with the Virginia Pollution Abatement Permit Regulation (9VAC25-32) including (i) "emergency storage" involving immediate implementation of storage for any sludge that becomes necessary due to unforeseen circumstances, (ii) "temporary storage" involving the provision of storage of stabilized sludges at the land application site that becomes necessary due to unforeseen climatic events that preclude land application of biosolids in the day that it is transported from the generator, and (iii) "routine storage" involving the storage of biosolids as necessary for all nonapplication periods of the year. The requirements for the design of biosolids storage facilities are located in 9VAC25-32.

B. Approval. The department will approve or disapprove the manual and notify the owner in accordance with 9VAC25-790-80 C.
