          IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT USING BIOSOLIDS AS A FERTILIZER

Biosolids Generation
Hiosolids1 are the "accumulated, treated solids tthat are Separated from.'water during the wastewater treatment
process. Biosolids are produced by public and private wastewater treatment plants (Generators). The Generator is
responsible for supplying biosolids that are suitable for land application according to state and federal specifications.

Benefits of Biosolids
Biosolids provide nitrogen in a form that can be taken up by plants during their growth cycle. Biosolids also add
phosphorus to the soil. If lime is added to biosolids, the biosolids will have the added benefit of a liming agent
Biosolids contain many primary, secondary and micronutrients that can be used by plants. Biosolids are primarily an
organic material; when added to soil, they improve water and nutrient retention, reduce erosion potential and
improve soil structure.

The Permitting Process
Once me lanm operator requests biosolids, a Synagro representative initially evaluates the farm for truck access and
field conditions. If the farm is found to be suitable and the Request for Biosolids and the Consent for Biosolids forms
are signed, Synagro will collect soil samples and have them analyzed by an independent laboratory.

Synagro will then apply for any federal, state or local permits required for biosolids application. The permits will
specifically identify the fields to which biosolids willbe applied and will be issued to Synagro or the Generator.

After the permits are obtained (a process that may take several months or more) Synagro will apply biosolids, as
they become available, to the fields. Availability of biosolids may vary because of weather conditions, contractual
arrangements with biosolids generators and other factors. Although the company cannot guarantee biosolids
application because of factors beyond its control, Synagro will use its best efforts to apply biosolids to the permitted
fields.                                .

The conditions outlined in the permit will apply to any and all biosolids applications made by Synagro. Synagro will
not bo responsible for biosolids applications made by any other entity.

Periodic visits to the land application site(s) by federal, state and local regulatory staff and Synagro representatives
may occur for the purpose of permitting the site, inspecting the site, applying biosolids, obtaining samples at the she
and testing. Proper identification will be provided upon request.

Agronomic Considerations
i ractor-iraiier units are used to deliver biosolids to the fields approved for biosolids applications. Soil compaction
may occur on the travel areas used by the trucks and in areas where biosolids is unloaded for transfer to the
applicator vehicle.                             *                       :   ;                       •

Since some biosolids contain lime, it is important to recognize any increase in soil pH where biosolids have been
applied and exercise care in using certain herbicides. If considering the use of a sulfonylurea herbicide, particular
attention should be paid to any label restrictions. High soil pH and dry weather may slow decomposition of these
chemicals, resulting in carry-over. For soils with low manganese levels, increased soil pH from lime addition (alone
or in lime treated biosolids) may reduce manganese availability and thereby potentially reduce crop yields.
In planning a herbicide program, it should be noted that seeds may sometimes survive the biosolids treatment
process- for example, tomato seeds. Also, the organic matter additions from biosolids application (organic matter
tends to tie up certain herbicides) may require increased herbicide application rates. Consult your extension agent
or chemical representative for a specificrecommendation.

Biosolids contain salts. Biosolids applications alone rarely cause salt problems. However, if combined with other
significant salt-increasing factors, such as drought, excessive soil compaction, saline irrigation water and salt-
containing fertilizers, salts may reach levels that could negatively affect germination and growth of some crops.

While odor from biosolids applications are not usually significant, and typically less than that from livestock manure,
it is possible that an odor from the decomposition of organic matter may be noticed. If this occurs, it generally '
disappears iria short time.

Since biosolids provide nitrogen that will be released slowly throughout the growing season with diminishing carry
over in subsequent years, it is important to reduce the use of nitrogen and other fertilizers to appropriate levels.

                                     INFORMATION ABOUT BIOSOLIDS


 Biosolids Generation
 Bfosolids are the accumulated, treated solids separated from water during the treatment of wastewaterby public and
 private wastewater treatment plants (Generators). The Generator is responsible for supplying biosolids that are
 suitable for land application under state and federal regulations.

 Benefits of Biosolids
 Biosolids provide nitrogen in a form that can be taken up by plants during their growth cycle. Biosolids also add
 phosphorus to the soil. If lime is added to biosolids, the biosolids will have the added benefit of a liming agent
 Biosolids contain primary, secondary and micronutrients that can be used by plants. Bbsolids are primarfly an
 organic material; when added to soB, they improve water and nutrient retention, reduce erosion potential and
 improve soil structure.

 Bbsolids Recycling Considerations
 While most bbsolids contain traces of materials from household and industrial wastes, controls are required to
 ensure that land application presents no increased risk to people, animals, or the environment These controls also
 ensure unrestricted future land use. Controls include federally mandated pretreatment programs to remove trace
 metals and other by-products from industry from the water these facilities send to treatment plants, ongoing biosolids
 testing and regulatory limits on both the amounts of metals contained in biosolids and the amounts that can be
 applied to the soil. Metals limits are very conservative based on decades of research by federal agencies and major
 universities nationwide. Metals exist naturally in so8s and many of the trace metals from bbsolids are essential
 nutrients for plants, animals and people.


Bbsolids must be property disinfected at the treatment plant to be eligible for land applicatbn Any pathogens
(bacteria and viruses) remaining after disinfection die off after land applbatfon from exposure to sunlight and the
hostBe soB environment. Regulations impose conservative waiting periods for livestock grazing, food crop and turf
harvesting and public access for die-off to occur. After more than 40 years of land applying bfosolids in the U.S., no
illness related to land applicatbn of biosolids has been documented.

While odor from bfosolids applications is not usually significant, and typically less than that from livestock manure it
is possible that an odor from the decompositbn of organic matter may be noticed. If this occurs, it generally
disappears in a short time. Injecting or incorporating biosolids into the soil on cropland also reduces odor potential.

Bfosolids Land Application Regulations
Bbsolids applications are regulated by federal, state and sometimes local agencies. Typically each land application
site must be permitted by a state agency. This permitting process ensures that sites are suitable for applicatbn,
biosolids of acceptable quality are applied correctly (e.g., at appropriate rates), and records of applicatbn and testing
are maintained. For farmland, bbsolids are applied at agricultural rates for cropping purposes and for
reclamatbn/disturbed lands at rates designed to reestablish vegetation on the site.

Regulations require that participants in land applicatbn programs follow certain site management conditions. These
are outlined in item 3 on the front side of this Consent Form. Synagro ensures that the leasee signs an agreement
form to be responsible for these conditions where applicable before Synagro applies bbsolids; however, you should
advise new leasees of these conditbns in cases where they are not also working with Synagro.

Agronomic Considerations
Tractor-trailer units are used to deliver bbsolids to the fields approved for biosolids applications. Soil compactbn
may occur on the travel areas used by the trucks and in areas where bbsolids are unloaded for transfer to the
applicator vehicle.


Since some bbsolids contain lime, it is important to recognize any increase in sofl pH where bbsolids have been
applied and exercise care in using certain herbicides. If considering the use of a sulfonylurea herbicide, particular
attention should be paid to any label restrictions. High soil pH and dry weather may slow decompositbn of these
chemicals, resulting in carry-over. For soils with low manganese levels, increased soil pH from lime additbn (alone
or in lime treated biosolids) may reduce manganese availability and thereby potentially reduce crop yields.

Bbsolids contain salts. Bbsolids applbatbns alone rarely cause salt problems. However, if combined with other
significant salt-increasing factors, such as drought, excessive soil compactbn, saline irrigatbn water and salt-
containing fertilizers, salts may reach levels that could negatively affect germination and growth of some crops.

 Mr. Robertson operates a cow/calve operation on these 75 acres of cultivated land in Bedford
 County, Virginia. Mr. Robertson currently uses commercial fertilizers to supply the nutrient
 needs of his crops. In the future, he plans to begin to use biosolids as a replacement for the
 purchased commercial fertilizer and lime. The attached information includes the planned fields
 to receive biosolids applications. The acreage included in this information has been
 determined using a GPS mapping system; these acres may deviate from the included FSA
 aerial photos due to more accurate field measurements.

 The nitrogen requirements listed in the crop needs column of the job sheet are demonstrating
 biosolids application the first year. If application are made another year, the maximum
 nitrogen recommendations for grass hay production, productivity class I, II III IV and V- is as
follows: 250, 250, 200,160, and 160 pounds per acre respectively.

Over the course of several years and consecutive applications of biosolids every three years,
the soil test phosphorous levels are expected to rise to a high or very high soil test range If
this occurs, the fertilization program should be reevaluated to supply maintenance levels of
phosphorous.

To maximize the benefits of this plan, the following guidelines should be followed:

1) Soil samples should be taken from fields, at a minimum, once every three years or once
per crop rotation to evaluate the need for additional soil nutrients, before additional
applications are made. This plan should be adjusted to reflect changes in soil fertility Lime
stabilized bjosolids, when available, should be used to adjust low soil pH levels to a range of
6.5 to 6.8. Otherwise, lime or other materials should be utilized to adjust soil pH to the proper
range of 6.2 to 6.8 in order to maximize proper utilization of soil nutrients.

2)   All biosolids applications must adhere to setbacks in accordance with the Virginia
Department of Health, "Biosolids Use Regulations".

3) Following a soil conservation plan is highly recommended, especially when soils in a field
are classified as highly erodible and soil test phosphorous values are very high (55 ppm or
greater as Mehlich I). If such a field is in pasture or grass hay, the grass should be maintained
at a minimum height of 3 inches to reduce soil erosion and improve runoff water quality.

4) It is also recommended that a soil nitrogen test be used to monitor all cornfields. This will
ensure that adequate nitrogen is available for crop development and allows the farmer to forgo
unnecessary nitrogen applications when soil nitrogen levels are sufficient.

5) All fertilizer and biosolids applications should consider residual sources or nitrogen release
from a previous legume crop and organic nitrogen mineralizing from previous manure or
biosolids applications.

6) Significant amounts of residual phosphorous should be applied in most biosolids
applications. Additional soil testing is recommended in order to determine if additional
phosphorus is necessary for crops in subsequent years. For example, when biosolids are
utilized to grow a crop of corn, the phosphorus requirements of a soybean crop grown the
following year should be met. This should be taken into account prior to the applications of
any additional phosphorus for the soybean crop.
