Biofuel Crops Recommendations
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.
