Abstract

Iowa law requires that all manure from an animal feeding operation must be land applied in a manner that will not cause surface or groundwater pollution. Chapter 65 of the Iowa Administrative Code (IAC) contains rules that govern land application of manure, including the separation distances summarized in Tables 1, 2 and 3 below. The separation distances are required by law and must be maintained between the protected area and the application area. Separation distances vary based on manure type, manure source and application method. Manure applicators need to be certified unless the manure originates from a small animal feeding operation or an open feedlot. All commercial applicators must be certified.
