CERCLA and EPCRA Reporting for Animal Agriculture

2017-11-08T22:46:30Z

What are CERCLA and EPCRA? The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA; often referred to as "Superfund") and the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) are federal regulatory acts that require reporting of actual and potential releases of ‘hazardous substances’ into the [water, air or soil] environment.  These acts came about as a result of some well-publicized environmental disasters that occurred in the absence of information being made available to local, state and federal authorities that may have helped avoid or reduce the negative environmental impacts. While agriculture was not responsible for these reporting regulations being enacted, the language of the acts has left the door open to lawsuits questioning the prevailing interpretations that these acts do not apply to air emissions from normal farm activities and operations. Court decisions have expanded the application of these reporting requirements to air emissions from the handling and storage of manure on livestock and poultry operations. The current ruling requires reporting of ammonia and/or hydrogen sulfide emissions generated from handling and storage of manure that exceed 100 pounds released in a 24-hour period. Do emissions from application of manure need to be reported? No, farm owners/operators do not need to report emissions from the normal application of fertilizers (including normal application of manure as a fertilizer) or the handling, storage or application of pesticide products registered under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). However, under CERCLA section 103, any spills or accidents involving these substances must be immediately reported to the NRC when they meet or exceed the reportable quantity. From EPA Frequently Asked Questions website. Do emissions from grazing livestock need to be reported? It is unclear whether emissions from grazing operations need to be reported under CERCLA/EPCRA, since EPA does not address this in current reporting guidance.  On the one hand, grazing does not involve handling or storage of manure. On the other, grazing operations that regularly collect and handle manure or confine animals in unvegetated areas for extended periods of time - and could thereby be classified as an ‘animal feeding operation’ by EPA for water quality purposes - could be viewed differently. So, emissions from animal housing and manure storage need to be reported? As it stands now, yes. However, this may change given activities in the works.  EPA interprets the phrase “used in routine agricultural operations” within EPCRA section 304 to include, for example, the handling and storage of waste for potential use as fertilizer. In creating the routine agricultural operation exception, Congress demonstrated its intent to treat farms differently than other types of facilities. EPA does not believe Congress intended the generation, handling or storage of animal waste to subject farms to reporting if they do not otherwise produce, use or store hazardous chemicals. Note: EPA intends to conduct a rulemaking on the interpretation of “used in routine agricultural operations” as it pertains to EPCRA reporting requirements. Under EPA’s interpretation, a farm where substances are used only in routine agricultural operations is not within the scope of EPCRA section 304; however, farms are still required to report releases of CERCLA hazardous substances under CERCLA 103. [This section taken directly from EPA EPCRA fact sheet, posted Oct. 30, 2017.] Additionally, multiple efforts are underway to get congressional action on this matter. However, there is no way to know now what actions will be implemented, if any, or when that may occur. Should I report? The inte[...]

<==Subscribe to the newsletter or browse past issues Webcast Series Looking Ahead to November: Long-term study of manure on root crops An eight-year study of manure in crop rotations that include root crops (sugar beets and potatoes) is taking a very comprehensive look at manure use. Researchers are studying everything from yields, soil health, characteristics of the harvested crop, nutrient runoff and leaching, and much more. Join us for a look at the results to date and what is being learned about timing and rate of manure application in relation to the value of food crops and environmental impacts. November 17, 2017 at 2:30 pm EST (1:30 CST; 12:30 MST; and 11:30 a.m. PST) A flyer will be posted on the Upcoming Webcasts page as soon as it is available.

The phosphorus index, as most of us know it, is a tool to assess the risk of P runoff through surface flows.

News release... | Journal abstract... Veterinary pharmaceuticals, when detected in water, are generally assumed to move via manure application, surface runoff, or leaching. Texas Tech researchers examined the potential for airborne transport via particulate matter (dust) to waterbodies. They sampled wetlands that were <15km from feedlots and found at least one pharmaceutical in every one. They suggest that this method of transport should be studied further to determine if it warrants inclusion in risk assessments. Journal abstract...

Manure Land Application Strategies to Mitigate Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance Genes in the Agricultural Environment

2017-06-14T18:15:47Z

When it comes to the land application of livestock manure, a major environmental concern is the loss of manure-borne nutrients to surface runoff. Management practices and regulations focus on how nutrients travel in runoff as functions of the timing and method of land application as well as proximity to water sources. When manure is applied to soil, manure constituents other than nutrients are also introduced to soil, such as heavy metals, antibiotics, and antibiotic resistance genes. Knowledge about the behaviors of these manure constituents in the environment as a function of manure application strategies is limited. In this article we will discuss the effects of various land application strategies on the fate and transport of manure borne antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes in soil and runoff. This will be broken down into three sections: manure storage; land application methods; and vegetative barrier. Although our studies were conducted using swine manure slurry, it is expected that that the general conclusion would also apply to other types of manure. Prior to a detailed description of our findings, we will first present some background information about manure-borne antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes. Why Care About Antibiotics? Antibiotics are often used in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) to prevent and treat diseases in livestock animals, increasing the density at which livestock can be kept. A substantial portion of these antibiotics can move thorough the digestive system of livestock, and end up in livestock urine and feces. These antibiotics can persist in the livestock manure and go on to alter the microbiome of soil and water. Bacteria exposed to these antibiotics may gain resistance to the antibiotics. This can be a major public health concern, because even the antibiotic resistant bacteria are harmless they may spread the resistance genes to pathogens. This, in turn, could impact human and animal health, as the antibiotics which we rely upon to treat infection will no longer be effective on treating resistant pathogens. Manure Storage Prior to land application, manure is usually stored in livestock waste management structures. In one study, the effects of anaerobic storage of manure on the fate of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes in manure were investigated. In this study, the levels of chlortetracycline and tylosin in manure slurry were monitored. The two antibiotics in swine manure degraded substantially over time under the anaerobic condition. The antibiotic resistance genes corresponding to chlortetracycline was also reduced substantially during manure storage.  In contrast, the resistance genes corresponding to tylosin did not decrease significantly. Application Method Manure and manure slurry may be applied to fields using application methods such as broadcast, injection, and incorporation. These land application methods have varying effects on the spread of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes in croplands. A study was conducted to investigate how these land application methods may affect the concentrations of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes in runoff and soil following the land application of swine slurry. Results show that land application methods had no statistically significant effect on the aqueous concentrations of antibiotics in the runoff.  However, among the three land application methods tested, broadcast resulted in the highest total mass load of antibiotics in runoff from the three simulated rainfall events. Similarly, broadcast resulted in higher concentrations of antibiotic resistance genes in runoff than did injection and incorporation. In manure amended soils, the effects of land appli[...]

Cayuga County Manure Digester Virtual Tour

2017-06-05T19:52:53Z

Anaerobic digestion is a manure treatment system that produces biogas. There are many benefits of digestion such as reductions in: odor, pathogens, and greenhouse gases (climate change). Producing biogas from manure yields useful by-products.  The economics of digestion are dependent on state energy policies and co-digestion of off-farm wastes to generate revenue. Cayuga County Regional Digester (New York) This virtual tour highlights the Cayuga County Soil & Water Conservation District regional digester. This facility receives manure from multiple dairy farms. The regional digester model allows smaller farms (not large enough to build their own digester) or large farms unwilling to take on the complex management of a digester to participate. For more information: Cornell case study (technical details) | NRCS Newsletter (construction photos and funding information) Type of digester: Pressure differential (hydraulic mix) Facility began operation: March, 2012 Feedstocks: dairy manure, food wastes, brown fat How Does This Anaerobic Digester Work?

Planning for Stewardship

2017-06-05T16:23:00Z

Home | Trends | Manure Management |  Nutrients | Water Quality | Clean Water Act | Stewardship (You are here) Managing manure as a beneficial resource involves: being aware of potential water quality issues knowing and following the rules that apply to animal agriculture practicing sound nutrient management taking advantage of appropriate options for realizing the benefits of manure Building on the previous sections in this module, this section focuses on tools and resources for managing manure-related risks and highlights strategies for good stewardship. It highlights assessing risk, siting, planning for emergencies, getting along with neighbors, and keeping records. “It’s all about sustainability. The more we know, the more we can plan, and the better job we can do. There’s always new information, new knowledge and new technology.” Marie Audet, Blue Spruce Farm; U.S. Innovation Center for Dairy 2015 Sustainability Award Winner Recommended Resources on Planning for Stewardship Agricultural Waste Management Field Handbook Chapter 2: Planning Considerations (USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service) Livestock and Poultry Environmental Stewardship (LPES) curriculum Lesson 1: Principles of Environmental Stewardship NPDES Permit Writers' Manual for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (U.S. EPA) Beneficial Uses of Manure (U.S. EPA) Best Management Practices To Minimize Agricultural Phosphorus Impacts on Water Quality (USDA Agricultural Research Service) This module focuses on water quality, but stewardship also includes attention to air quality, odor and nuisance concerns, and aesthetics (appearance). Location! Location! Location! Selecting an appropriate site for manure storage, feed storage, open lots, barns, stockpiles, and land application is a critical first step when looking at building new structures or expanding existing ones. Assessments of existing farm sites should identify risk areas to be avoided or where improvements are needed to protect water resources. Below are potential pollution sources and some of the factors that should be considered when assessing the risks to environmentally sensitive features when siting and designing operations. These lists are not comprehensive but provide some common areas for consideration. Potential Pollution Sources Manure storage Animal lots and barns Feed storage Dead animal burial, composting, or pickup site Open lots or corrals Land application Field stockpiles of manure Pesticide, chemical, fuel storage Factors Influencing Pollution Potential Distance Soil type Slope Presence of tiles and other drains, pipes, ditches, culverts or other conveyances Cross-connections in water supply and/or waste systems Vegetative cover Environmental Features of Special Concern Wells and wellhead protection areas (groundwater) Rivers, streams, ponds, lakes, wetlands and other water Sinkholes, karst topography Neighbors, public spaces Threatened or endangered species or habitats Assessing risk is a very site-specific exercise. In one situation, 100 feet between a potential pollutant and a stream may be perfectly acceptable, such as when the buffer has extensive vegetation and little slope. In other situations, even a 100-foot buffer might be inadequate, such as when the buffer is subject to channelized flow due to erosion. There are a variety of tools to help producers assess the risk of particular siting decisions, such as Farm*A*Syst. Figure 1 provides an example of the type of questions asked in such tools to guide producers the best siting choice. Figure 1. Sample Farm*A*Syst style risk asse[...]



Water Quality Issues Associated with Manure

2017-06-05T15:33:25Z

Home | Trends | Manure Management |  Nutrients | Water Quality (You are here) | Clean Water Act | Stewardship allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FVkomAiXPHQ?rel=0" width="560"> Many of the images and scenarios on this page may be permit violations or may contribute to exceedances of water quality standards; however, additional information beyond what is provided on this educational page is required to make determinations of that nature. The next topic in this module provides additional information on Clean Water Act requirements. Challenges In Managing Manure Nutrients Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are essential for plant growth. When nutrients are applied in excess of what crops need or when they are applied at a risky time, more nutrients can end up in water than might otherwise have been the case. This holds true regardless of the source of nutrients. This module focuses on manure and some of the challenges in managing manure nutrients. Economics. Manure contains more than nutrients. Organic matter contributes to soil health and crop growth. Manure also contains water. "Dry" solid manure can be 20-40% water and manure pumped from a liquid or slurry storage is about 90% water. Nutrients in manure are less concentrated than in commercial fertilizers. Relatively speaking, that makes manure expensive to haul long distances. As animal agriculture sectors have consolidated, resulting in larger farms, more manure is produced in smaller areas. Because of the transport expense, manure tends to be applied close to where it is produced. In areas with many livestock or poultry farms exporting manure, it can be challenging to find fields within a reasonable distance for application. Farmers are beginning to do more manure marketing and some are looking at technologies that can add value to manure. These can offset the costs of transporting manure or can transform manure nutrients into a form that is economical to transport. Related: USDA Economic Research Service "Effects of structural change: manure and excess nutrients" (dairy). The referenced chapter is part of a larger report. Nitrogen:Phosphorus Ratio. Another important point regarding manure is that it contains more P than N relative to what crops need. If manure is applied at rates to meet the crop N needs, more P than the crop can use in a single year is applied. Over time, P in the soil can build up to levels that present a significant risk for transport to water. Managing this, at least in part, includes a process known as nutrient management planning. Another way to manage this risk is through the use of the phosphorus index (P-index). The P-index is a risk assessment that factors in several inputs to determine if N-based rates of manure can be used or if application needs to be reduced to a P-based rate. In some cases, the index may show a high enough risk to discontinue P application (manure or otherwise) altogether. To learn more about the P-index, do an Internet search with your state name + phosphorus index. Recommended Resource: SERA-17 publications.(a multistate information exchange group focused on P.) Variable Nutrient Content. Manure is not a standard product. It varies greatly among animal species and even within species due to varying farm management practices. The most accurate estimate of a farm's manure nutrient content comes from sampling and manure testing. Recommended Viewing: Iowa Learning Farms videos on liquid manure and solid manure sampling procedures. Nitrogen Availability. Much of the nitrogen in manure is in organic form. [...]



Land Application of Manure Nutrients

2017-06-05T15:10:50Z

Home | Trends | Manure Management |  Nutrients (you are here) | Water Quality | Clean Water Act | Stewardship For some, manure is a waste or a nuisance, something to be disposed of rather than utilized. It is true that mismanagement can cause problems with water quality, but when managed properly, manure can be a valuable resource. The primary use for this resource is as a plant fertilizer in crop fields. When land applied from the right source, at the right time and rate, using the right methods and in the right place, manure can provide agronomic benefits while minimizing risks to water resources. Figure 1. Manure nutrients move and cycle around the farm system. All elements of this cycle might not occur on the same farm as many import feed from other farms or commercial sources and export manure to other farms. Why Is Manure Used As a Crop Fertilizer? As Figure 1 (above) shows, manure is an integral part of the nutrient cycle that occurs on farms. Manure contains many nutrients including all three of the major (macro) nutrients needed by crops: nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). Manure also contains organic matter, an important part of soil health. Soil health encompasses biological, physical, and chemical properties. Soil water holding capacity, nutrient cycling, and microbiological activity all can be improved by manure land application. Photo 1. (Above) On-farm research plots showing differences in fertilizer application. The middle rows show how much crops can be affected if there is a deficiency in nutrients. Photo courtesy of Glen Arnold, The Ohio State University. The interaction of manure with soil is important to nutrient management. Manure contains organic N and ammonia N. Organic N is not immediately available to crops; it must be transformed through microbial activity into plant-available forms. This process is part of the nitrogen cycle. The mineralization of organic N into plant-available nitrate or ammonium occurs over time, and most states have Extension publications available to estimate the amount of nitrogen that will be available to plants each year following manure application. Even the time of year that manure is applied has an impact on nutrient availability. Two examples of research in this area include: North Dakota State University looked at spring and fall manure application and impacts on crop yields using beef cattle manure. University of Minnesota explored the timing of swine manure application, its effect on yields, and the potential for nutrient losses. What Does Manure Application Look Like? Solid Manure Application align="right" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/SEuDjCZ5ZjA?rel=0" width="300"> Solid manure spreaders can be hitched to a tractor or mounted on a truck. They are engineered to discharge manure from the back or side of the spreader. Most of the photos and video on this page show large equipment, but specialized equipment is available for small farms to handle their manure. The video clip to the right shows a solid manure spreader applying beef feedlot manure at a rate of 10 tons per acre. Solid manure is spread on the surface of the soil. Sometimes it is incorporated (using a disc or other tillage equipment) into the soil to reduce odors or as part of normal field operations. The following photo slide show depicts examples of solid manure spreaders and related solid manure handling equipment. It also shows a field after manure has been spread on it.

Manure and Soil Biology

2017-05-30T20:59:35Z

In the Manure and Soil Biology roundtable, our goal was to discover the influence of manure, both positive and negative, on soil biology. We discussed if certain fields will produce more soil biology benefits than others and whether timing of application affects these benefits. Finally, we debated whether we can derive an economic value for manure beyond its nutrient value. Field experiences and observations related to the value of manure as well as what farmers still need related to soil building with manure were reviewed. This dialogue was the second in a four part series discussing the current state of our knowledge relative to manure’s impact on soil health.
