§ 17896.9. Dairy In-Vessel Digestion Operations.
(a) All dairy in-vessel digestion operations shall comply with the EA Notification requirements set forth in Title 14, California Code of Regulations, Division 7, Chapter 5.0, Article 3.0 (commencing with section 18100).
(1) These operations shall be inspected by the EA at least once a month for the first 12 months of operation. After the first 12 months of operation the EA may approve, with Department concurrence, a reduced inspection frequency of once every three months. After the first 24 months of operation the EA may approve, with Department concurrence, a reduced inspection frequency of once per calendar year. The EA may approve a reduced inspection frequency only if it will not pose an additional risk to public health and safety or the environment.
[NOTE: See section 18083(a)(3) for additional enforcement agency and Department requirements regarding the approval or denial of requests for reducing the frequency of inspections.]
(2) Any imported materials delivered to the dairy must be pumped or off-loaded directly into a covered, leak-proof container and then pumped, or diluted or slurried and then pumped, and co-digested in an in-vessel digester at a dairy. The pumped material may be screened, otherwise separated or treated prior to in-vessel digestion, but must be processed and conveyed in a contained system. Any separated material at the dairy that is not suitable for in-vessel digestion and has no beneficial use shall be further managed as a solid waste.
