The owner of an animal feedlot is exempt from the state ambient air quality standards during the removal of manure from barns or manure storage facilities pursuant to the limitations in Minnesota Statutes, section 116.0713, paragraphs (b) and (c). Nothing in this part limits the emergency powers authority of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency in Minnesota Statutes, section 116.11.
The operator of a livestock production facility that claims exemption from the state ambient air quality standards shall notify the commissioner or county feedlot pollution control officer. Notification must include:
the names of the owners or the legal name of the facility;
the location of the facility by county, township, section, and quarter section;
the facility's permit number, if applicable; and
the anticipated start date and the anticipated number of days of removal of manure from barns or manure storage facilities.
