Bill summary

Amends GS 143-215.1(d) adding language that allows governing boards of counties to require, by ordinance, that bulk residuals be incinerated before land application if the county operates or contracts with an incinerator as permitted in GS Chapter 130A, Article 9. Provides that if a county does not operate or contract with a permitted incinerator, then the governing board can by ordinance specify an alternate method of pathogen reduction and vector attraction reduction. Further adds language requiring the ordinance to be attached to permits for land application of bulk residuals and that the North Carolina Environmental Management Commission incorporate the ordinance's requirement into the permit. 

Effective October 1, 2015, applying to any land application site for disposal of bulk residuals for which a permit is issued or renewed on or after that date.
