Solid Manure Storage Characteristics

Applies to: Manure Storage

Description:

This indicator refers to the prevention of negative impacts of wastewater form the solid manure storage on nearby waters. The indicator considers location and permeability of the storage.

Questions:

Is the storage facility located in a sensitive groundwater area?

Is the storage facility situated in an area prone to flooding?

Does the storage facility have impermeable base and walls?

Rating:

Storage with impermeable base and walls located outside sensitive groundwater area and area prone to flooding

Storage with impermeable base and walls located outside area prone to flooding, but within sensitive groundwater area

Storage with impermeable base and walls located within sensitive groundwater area and area prone to flooding

Storage with permeable base and walls

Not in line with relevant regulation

EU level:

Description:

This indicator refers to the prevention of negative impacts of wastewater form the manure storage on nearby waters. The indicator considers location, permeability of the storage and whether the activity is covered by the Directive 2010/75/EU. Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and the Council on industrial emissions (the Industrial Emissions Directive) is the main EU instrument regulating pollutant emissions from industrial installations. The Directive aims to achieve a high level of protection of human health and the environment taken as a whole by reducing harmful industrial emissions across the EU, in particular through better application of Best Available Techniques (BAT).

Questions:

Is this activity included in the Annex I of the Directive 2010/75/EU?

Is the storage facility located in a sensitive groundwater area?

Is the storage facility situated in an area prone to flooding?

Does the storage facility have impermeable base and walls?

Rating:

Storage with impermeable base and walls located outside sensitive groundwater area and area prone to flooding

Storage with impermeable base and walls located outside area prone to flooding, but within sensitive groundwater area

Storage with impermeable base and walls located within sensitive groundwater area and area prone to flooding

Storage with permeable base and walls, not included in the Annex I of the Directive 2010/75/EU

Storage with permeable base and walls, included in the Annex I of the Directive 2010/75/EU
