1217 Interagency Guidance Committee
Senate Bill 1217 (Session Law 1995-626) was ratified in June of 1996.
Section 18 authorized the creation of the interagency group to:
- Address questions from technical specialists and provide uniform
interpretations to technical specialists regarding the requirements of
the animal waste management rules.
- Publish its decisions on these questions on a regular and recurring basis.
- Provide uniform strategies for operators of intensive livestock
operations to meet the December 31, 1997, deadline to obtain an approved
animal waste management plan.
- Develop, no later than August
1, 1996, a standard for the use of riparian buffers or equivalent
controls as best management practices, particularly along perennial
streams; decide whether a uniform State standard, a uniform basin wide
standard, or a site-specific standard best protects water quality; and
submit the standard that the group decides upon the Soil and Water
Conservation Commission for adoption in developing best management
practices for riparian buffers and equivalent controls under Section 6
of this act.
The SB 1217 Interagency Group continues to meet to
provide uniform interpretations of animal waste management rules and
address questions from technical specialists. The Group's decisions are
published in guidance documents on a recurring basis.
