62-640.600. Pathogen Reduction and Vector Attraction Reduction  


Effective on Sunday, August 29, 2010
  • 1All biosolids applied to the land or distributed and marketed shall be treated with a treatment process designed to reduce pathogens and achieve vector attraction reduction in accordance with the requirements of this section. The Department hereby adopts and incorporates by reference the pathogen and vector attraction reduction requirements of 5140 CFR 503.32 54and 503.33, revised as of April 9, 2007, and effective on April 25, 2007, except for the site restrictions in 7440 CFR 503.32(b)(5), 77the septage requirements in 8140 CFR 503.32(c), 84and the vector attraction reduction requirements in 9140 CFR 503.33(b)(11) 94and 503.33(b)(12).

    96(1) Pathogen Reduction Requirements.

    100(a) Class AA and Class A Biosolids. 107Class AA and Class A biosolids shall meet one of the pathogen reduction requirements described in 12340 CFR 503.32(a)(3), 126(4), (5), (7), and (8). For treatment processes permitted under 13640 CFR 503.32(a)(5), 139a permittee shall not implement the provisions of 14740 CFR 503.32(a)(5)(ii)(D) 150and 503.32(a)(5)(iii)(D) until:

    1531. The permittee demonstrates to the Department, based on monitoring data from the facility, that the documented pathogen treatment process operating parameters reduce enteric viruses and viable helminth ova to levels below the limits specified in 18940 CFR 503.32(a)(5); 192and

    1932. The permit is revised to specifically allow the permittee to implement 20540 CFR 503.32(a)(5)(ii)(D) 208and 503.32(a)(5)(iii)(D).

    210(b) Class B Biosolids. Class B Biosolids shall meet one of the pathogen reduction requirements described in 22740 CFR 503.32(b).

    230(c) Septage management facilities that are regulated by the Department, and that do not treat any amount of biosolids, shall satisfy Class B pathogen reduction requirements if sufficient lime is added to produce a pH of 12 for a minimum of two hours, or a pH of 12.5 for a minimum of 30 minutes. Processes and design shall be in accordance with the guidance for lime stabilization of septage in Chapter 6, Process Design Manual for Sludge Treatment and Disposal, which the Department adopts and incorporates by reference. The pH shall be maintained at or above 11 until land application, but shall be less than 12.5 at the time of land application. Materials treated in accordance with this provision shall be managed as Class B biosolids.

    356(2) Vector Attraction Reduction Requirements.

    361(a) All Class A and Class B biosolids shall meet one of the vector attraction reduction requirements in 37940 CFR 503.33(b)(1) 382through (10).

    384(b) Class AA biosolids shall meet one of the vector attraction reduction requirements in 39840 CFR 503.33(b)(1) 401through (8).

    403(c) Septage management facilities that are regulated by the Department, and that do not treat any amount of biosolids satisfy vector attraction reduction requirements if the Class B pathogen reduction requirements of paragraph 43662-640.600(1)(c), 437F.A.C. are met.
