1.    I agree to be responsible for adhering to the following conditions, where applicable:
     a.    The soil pH will be adjusted to > 6.0 when biosolids are applied. (This may be accomplished through the
           application of lime-treated biosolids.)
     b.    Do not graze animals on the land for 30 days after the application of biosolids. In addition, animals intended
           for dairy production should not be allowed to graze on the land or be fed chopped foliage for 60 days after the
           application of biosolids. Meat-producing livestock should not be fed chopped foliage for 30 days after the
          application of biosolids.
     c.   Food crops for direct human consumption that are above the land surface shall not be harvested for 14
          months after the application of biosolids.
     d.   Food crops for direct human consumption with harvested parts below the surface of the land shall not be
          harvested for 20 months after the application of biosolids when the biosolids remain on the land surface > 4
          months prior to incorporation into the soil, or 38 months when the biosolids remain on the land surface <~A
          months prior to incorporation.
     e.   Food crops, feed crops and fiber crops shall not be harvested for 30 days after application of biosolids.
     f.   Public access to land with a low potential for public exposure shall be restricted for 30 days. Public access to
          land with a high potential for public exposure shall be restricted for 1 year. No biosolids-amended soil shall
          be excavated or removed from the site for 30 days following the biosolids application unless adequate
          provisions are made to prevent public exposure to soil, dusts or aerosols.
     g.   Turf grown on land where biosolids are applied shall not be harvested for one year after application of
          biosolids when the harvested turf is placed on either land with a high potential for public exposure or a lawn,
          unless otherwise specified by the permitting authority.
     h.   Supplemental commercial fertilizer or manure applications should be coordinated with the biosolids
          applications such that the total crop needs for nutrients are not exceeded as identified on the nutrient balance
          sheet or the nutrient management plan approved by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation
          to be supplied to the farm operator by Synagro at the time of application of biosolids to a specific permitted
          site.
     i.   Tobacco, because it has been shown to accumulate cadmium, should not be grown for three years following
          the application of biosolids-borne cadmium equal to or exceeding 0.45 lbs/acre.
2. I understand that this transaction is not contemplated by the parties to be a sale of goods, and that Synagro is
   willing to provide to me without charge the service of land applying biosolids which have been approved by the
     appropriate regulatory agencies for land application.
3. I understand that successful crop production depends on many variables, such as weather, soil conditions and
   specific farming practices and that while Synagro has experience with land application of biosolids, the
   responsibility for properly accommodating agricultural practices to biosolids utilization are solely mine. I have also
   read and understand the "Important Information About Using Biosolids as a Fertilizer" which is on the reverse side
     and incorporated by reference in this Request and Consent.

          IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT USING BIOSOLIDS AS A FERTILIZER

Biosolids Generation
Hiosolids are the accumulated, treated solidssthat 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
Uiosolids 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
(Jnce the tarrn operatoi1 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 will be 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 biosolidsgenerators and other factors. Althoughthe 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 be 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 site
and testing. Proper identification will be provided upon request.


Agronomic Considerations
I rador-trailer 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 specific recornmendatibn;

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 ah odor from the decomposition of organic matter rhay be noticed. If this occurs, it generally
disappears in a short time.

Sinco biocolidc 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.

Biosolids Generation
Bbsolids are the accumulated, treated solids separated from water during the treatment of wastewater by 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. Biosolids are primarily an
organic material; when added (o soil, they improve water and nutrient retention, reduce erosion potential and
Improve soil structure.

Bbsolids Recycling Considerations
While most biosolids 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 bbsolids
testing and regulatory limits on both the amounts of metals contained in biosolids and the amounts that can be
applied to the sol Metals limits are very conservative based on decades of research by federal agencies and major
universities nationwide. Metals exist naturally in soils and many of the trace metals from biosolids are essential
nutrients for plants, animals and people.

Biosolids must be property disinfected at the treatment plant to be eligible for land application. Any pathogens
(bacteria and viruses) remaining after disinfection die off after land application from exposure to sunlight and the
hostile so9 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 biosolids in the U.S., no
illness related to land application of biosolids has been documented.

While odor from biosolids applications is not usually significant, and typically less than that from livestock manure, it
is possfole that an odor from the decomposition 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.

Biosolids 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 application,
bbsolids of acceptable quality are applied correctly (e.g., at appropriate rates), and records of application and testing
are maintained. For farmland, biosolids are applied at agricultural rates for cropping purposes and for
reclamation/disturbed lands at rates designed to reestablish vegetation on the site.

Regulations require that participants in land application 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 conditions 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 bbsolids applications. Soil compaction
may occur on the travel areas used by the trucks and in areas where biosolids are unloaded for transfer to the
applicator vehicle.

Since some bfosolids contain lime, it is important to recognize any increase in soil pH where bbsolids have been
applied and exercise care in using certain herbicides. If considering the use of a sulfonylurea herbicide, particular
attentbn should be paid to any label restrictions. High sofl 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 bbsolfcte) may reduce manganese avaflabBity and thereby potentially reduce crop yields.

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

                                     BE162 Narrative
Mr. Angus operates a cow/calve and hay operation on these 127 acres of cultivated land in
Bedford County, Virginia. Mr. Angus 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 biosolids, 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 com, 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.

1 The planned biosolid application is an organic nutrient source application and at least two cuttings of hay are planned. Therefore, the entire nitrogen application is planned as one
spring application. If this application of biosoltd is completed between October 1 and February 29, the application must be applied at half the listed rate.
