wastewater pollutants to waters of the state is prohibited.
(2) Whenever rainfall events cause an
overflow of process wastewater from a structure designed, constructed,
operated, and maintained to contain all process wastewater including the direct
precipitation and runoff from a twenty-five (25) year, twenty-four (24) hour
rainfall event for the location of the point source, process wastewater
pollutants in the overflow may be discharged into waters, provided that the

(D) Manure, litter, and process wastewater
impoundments, noting the level in open surface liquid impoundments as indicated
by the depth marker.
Conduct daily inspection of all water lines that may come in contact with or
impact manure, litter, or process wastewater in and around the production area.
Water lines include drinking water lines for livestock.
(5) Correct any deficiencies found in
inspections as soon as possible.
(6) Do not dispose of mortalities in a liquid
manure or process wastewater system. Mortalities must be handled to prevent the
discharge of pollutants to surface water.
Maintain, within the operating record
required under section 11 of this rule, for a period of five (5) years from the
date of creation, a complete copy of the following records:
(A) Records documenting
records of the depth of manure and process wastewater in the open surface
liquid impoundment, as indicated by the depth marker.
(C) Records of actions taken to correct
deficiencies. Deficiencies not corrected within thirty (30) days of discovery
must be accompanied by an explanation of the factors preventing immediate
(D) Records of
mortality management and practices.
(E) Records documenting the current design of
any manure, litter, or process wastewater storage structures, including volume
for solids accumulation, design treatment volume, total design volume, and
approximate number of days of storage capacity.
(F) Records of the date, time, and estimated
amount of any overflow.
For the land upon which the CAFO applies
manure, the records described in
327 IAC 19-14-3(f)
must be maintained in the operating record
for a period of five (5) years from the date of permit coverage.
