Then, sign it and mail it as instructed in the submittal checklist No. 1 (pages 3 to 7). See page 7 for information regarding additional permits that may be required to your open feedlot.


SECTION 1 - Is a construction permit required?

If any of the following criteria are met, a construction permit is required prior to constructing, expanding or modifying the manure control system at an open feedlot or a combined operation or prior to repopulating an open feedlot operation. Check all boxes that apply:




Criteria

If the open feedlot maintains more than one animal type, add all animal units in open feedlots and determine if the Total AUCError: Reference source not found is 1,000 AU or more. Also, if you answered "Yes" in SECTION 1, D) (adjacency), include the animals of the adjacent open feedlot operation(s).

Item



The soils and hydrogeologic conditions, subsurface soil classification and the result of soils investigation at the proposed construction site must be conducted as required in 567 IAC 65.109(2), "a" to "c"(1)-(7) and/or 567 IAC 65.110(4):






The report must be prepared by a qualified person ordinarily engaged in the practice of performing soil investigations.






A detailed description of three continuous core samples – minimum of three per Cell (Settled Open Feedlot Effluent Basin), must be included. All boring logs should provide soil profile characterization to identify both depth to seasonal high ground water table and Loess/Till interface – to a minimum of 10 feet below the proposed basin bottom.

If more than 25 feet or more of unconsolidated(suitable) material exists then the site is not considered to be karst.







 If site is in karst or drains to a known sinkhole then settled open feedlot effluent basins and all manure storage structures must be formed, pursuant to 567 IAC 65.109(4).







 Where bedrock is encountered, but site is not in karst, determine if the bedrock separation requirement in 567 IAC 65.109(5) is met.

Determination of groundwater table must be done as required in 567 IAC 65.109(3)"a" or 567 IAC 65.110(5). The measured groundwater elevations rarely represent the seasonal groundwater table. Therefore, soils characteristics and NRCS soils data must be considered.






Water table map should be constructed from the water table levels observed in the soil corings and monitoring wells. This may also be included in the cross sectional view of the engineering plans.






Indicate in a cross sectional view, the estimated surface groundwater table. This may also be included in the cross sectional view of the engineering plans.






Verify that all deep soil corings and temporary monitoring wells will be plugged following sampling.






If known, identify location of proposed long-term monitoring (as needed by the DNR determination) and based upon the Geotechnical report submitted. This may also be included in the plan view or cross sectional view of the engineering plans.






Verify soil suitability for construction of the compacted liner.

(2)  Manure or process wastewater is discharged directly into waters of the United States which originate outside of and pass over, across or through the facility or otherwise come into direct contact with animals confined in the operation.
Designated CAFO” means an AFO that has been designated as a CAFO pursuant to rule 65.103(455B,459A).
65.103(1) The department may evaluate any animal feeding operation that is not defined as a large or medium CAFO, and designate it as a CAFO if, after an on-site inspection, it is determined to be a significant contributor of manure or process wastewater to waters of the United States. In making this determination, the department shall consider the following factors:

  1. The size of the operation and the amount of manure or process wastewater reaching waters of the United States;

  2. The location of the operation relative to waters of the United States;

  3. The means of conveyance of manure or process wastewater to waters of the United States;

  4. The slope, vegetation, rainfall, and other factors affecting the likelihood or frequency of discharge of manure or process wastewater into waters of the United States; and

  5. Other relevant factors.


65.103(2) No animal feeding operation with an animal capacity less than that specified for a medium CAFO shall be designated as a CAFO unless manure or process wastewater from the operation is discharged into a water of the United States:

  1. Through a man-made ditch, flushing system, or other similar man-made device; or

  2. Which originates outside of and passes over, across or through the facility or otherwise comes into direct contact with animals confined in the operation.


65.103(3) The owner or operator of a designated CAFO shall apply for an NPDES permit no later than 90 days after receiving written notice of the designation.
The DNR's mission:

To conserve and enhance our natural resources in cooperation with individuals and organizations to improve the quality of life for Iowans and ensure a legacy for future generations.

1 Open Feedlot: Unroofed or partially roofed area where livestock or poultry are confined for more that 45 days out of any 12-month period.

2 Combined: combined operation includes both of the other two definitions in items 1 & 5.

3 NPDES permit as defined in rule 567 IAC 65.100(455B,459,459A). See page 7 for instructions on how to download the open feedlot operation rules.

4 CAFO: Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation as defined in rule 567 IAC 65.100(455B,459,459A). You must combine same type of animals, in confinement buildings and open feedlot pens that are under common ownership or management. To calculate the animal capacity of the operation or combined operation, use Table 1 (on page 2.) If the combined animal capacity meets the large CAFO or medium CAFO definitions, your operation is a CAFO. A CAFO also includes a designated CAFO. See page 7 for instructions on how to download the open feedlot operation rules and page 8 for a CAFO description.

5 Confinement: Totally roofed area where livestock or poultry are confined for more than 45 days out of any 12-month period.
