LAND APPLICATION PERMIT

ISSUED NEW

CITY OF COLUMBUS, 123 Washington Street, Columbus, Indiana, Permit No. IN LA 000828.  This permit approves the land application of biosolids generated at the City of Columbus wastewater treatment plant located on Jonesville Road.  The biosolids will be land applied at agronomic rates to farmland located in BARTHOLOMEW, BROWN, DECATUR, JACKSON, and JOHNSON, COUNTIES.  The biosolids from this facility meet high quality criteria established by state and federal regulations qualifying it for a “nonsite-specific” land application permit.  The biosolids will be land applied on qualifying farmland in the designated counties upon receipt of permission of the landowner.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) recognize and encourages the beneficial use of wastewater biosolids through such practices as land application.  The permit controls the quality of the biosolids to be applied as well as the yearly and cumulative amount of biosolids that can be land applied to a site.  For more specific information concerning the permit, contact Randall Duckworth, Certified Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator, at (812) 372-2400 ext. 450.  This permit is written in accordance with Indiana Administrative Code 327 IAC 6.1.
