Recordkeeping.

The person who prepares biosolids or sewage sludge, the person who applies nonexceptional quality biosolids to the land, and the person who applies septage to the land must keep certain records and certification statements as described in this section.
(1) A responsible official as described in WAC 173-308-310(10) must sign all certification statements required under this section.
(2) Preparers of biosolids or sewage sludge. The person who prepares biosolids or sewage sludge must keep the following records, as applicable, and certification statement for five years:
(a) The amount applied by the preparer/preparer's agent to agricultural land.
(b) The amount applied by the preparer/preparer's agent to forest land.
(c) The amount applied by the preparer/preparer's agent to a public contact site.
(d) The amount applied by the preparer/preparer's agent to a land reclamation site.
(e) The amount applied by the preparer/preparer's agent to a lawn or home garden.
(f) The amount sold or given away by the preparer in a bag or other container.
(g) The amount sold or given away by the preparer in bulk form (does not include that provided to the preparer's agent).
(h) The amount in a compost or blended biosolids product sold or given away by the preparer.
(i) The amount sent to a municipal solid waste landfill for disposal and the name of the landfill.
(j) The amount stored on-site.
(k) The amount transferred to another facility for further treatment and the name of the other treatment facility.
(l) The amount received from another facility and the name of the other facility.
(m) The amount transferred for incineration and the name of the incineration facility.
(n) Laboratory analysis data showing that the pollutant ceiling concentrations in WAC 173-308-160 Table 1 were met.
(o) Laboratory analysis data showing that the pollutant concentrations in WAC 173-308-160 Table 3 were met.
(p) Process monitoring and/or laboratory analysis data showing that the pathogen reduction requirements in WAC 173-308-170 were met and a description of how the requirements were met.
(q) If the vector attraction reduction requirements in WAC 173-308-180 were met, process monitoring and/or laboratory analysis data and a description of how the requirements were met.
(r) Laboratory analysis data showing the nitrogen concentration.
CERTIFICATION STATEMENT:
"I certify, under penalty of law, that the following were met (check boxes, as applicable):
□ The pollutant ceiling concentration limits in WAC 173-308-160 Table 1.
□ The pollutant concentration limits in WAC 173-308-160 Table 3.
□ The Class A pathogen reduction requirements in WAC 173-308-170: □(1), □(2), □(3), □(4).
□ The Class B pathogen reduction requirements in WAC 173-308-170: □(5), □(6), □(7).
□ The vector attraction reduction requirements in WAC 173-308-180: □(1), □(2), □(3), □(4), □(5), □(6).
This determination was made under my direction and supervision in accordance with a system designed to ensure that qualified personnel properly gather and evaluate the information used to determine that pathogen reduction requirements, vector attraction reduction requirements, and pollutant concentration limits have been met. I am aware that there are significant penalties for false certification including the possibility of fine and imprisonment."

(3) Appliers of nonexceptional quality biosolids. The person who applies nonexceptional quality biosolids must keep the following records, as applicable, and certification statement for five years or indefinitely where stated.
(a) The location of each site, either by street address, the latitude and longitude of the approximate center, or the section, township and range of each quarter section, and a map(s) with the application area(s) clearly shown.
(b) The number of acres in each site on which biosolids were applied.
(c) The date biosolids were applied to each site.
(d) The targeted vegetation grown on each site and its nitrogen requirement.
(e) The rate, in dry tons per acre per year, at which biosolids are applied to each site.
(f) The amount, in dry tons, of biosolids applied to each site.
(g) In addition, when biosolids with pollutants exceeding the WAC 173-308-160 Table 3 concentrations are applied, the following records must be kept indefinitely:
(i) The cumulative amount of each pollutant listed in WAC 173-308-160 Table 2 in the biosolids applied to each site.
(ii) A description of how the requirement to obtain information under WAC 173-308-160 (2)(b) was met.
(h) If the biosolids were Class B for pathogens, a description of how the site management and access restrictions in WAC 173-308-210 (5)(a) were met.
(i) If the vector attraction reduction requirements were not met prior to application, a description of how requirements in WAC 173-308-210 (5)(b) were met.
CERTIFICATION STATEMENT:
"I certify, under penalty of law, that the following were met (check boxes, as applicable):
□ The requirement to obtain information under WAC 173-308-160 (2)(b) (required if any of the pollutant concentrations exceed those in WAC 173-308-160 Table 3).
□ The vector attraction reduction requirement in □WAC 173-308-210(4): □(a) or □(b) (required if the vector attraction reduction requirements were not met prior to application).
□ The site management and access restrictions in WAC 173-308-210(5): □(a) and/or □(b).
This determination was made under my direction and supervision in accordance with a system designed to ensure that qualified personnel properly gather and evaluate the information used to determine that the requirements to obtain information have been met, the site management and access restrictions have been met, and the vector attraction reduction requirements have been met. I am aware that there are significant penalties for false certification including fine and imprisonment."
