with the following directions:  In the first window, click “Document Search” and enter the document number 65219168 in the box on the upper right hand side of the screen.   Questions concerning this application can be directed to Randall Duckworth, Certified Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator, at (812) 447-8684.  This application was submitted in accordance with Indiana Administrative Code 327 IAC 6.1.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) recognize and encourages the beneficial use of biosolids through such practices as land application.  Upon issuance of a land application permit, permittees are allowed to land apply biosolids on qualifying farmland in designated counties, or specific farmland as designated in the permit, with permission of the landowner.  A land application permit controls the quality of the biosolids to be applied as well as the yearly and cumulative amount of biosolids which can be land applied to a site.
