Table 1 of § 503.16 —Frequency of Monitoring—Land Application

Greater than zero but less than 290 Once per year.
Equal to or greater than 290 but less than 1,500 Once per quarter (four times per year).

(b) Domestic septage. If either the pathogen requirements in § 503.32(c)(2) or the vector attraction reduction requirements in § 503.33(b)(12) are met when domestic septage is applied to agricultural land, forest, or a reclamation site, each container of domestic septage applied to the land shall be monitored for compliance with those requirements.
