          IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT USING BIOSOLIDS AS A FERTILIZER

Biosolids Generation                                                            ....           .       .   ,
Bibs6lids are the accumulated, treated solids ithat 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.


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
Unce the farm 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 locaf permits required for biosolids application. The permits will
specifically identify the fields to which biosoMs 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 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 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 ractor-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 sulfbnylurea 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 manganeseavailability 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) rriay require increased herbicide application rates: Consult your extension agent
 or chemical representative for a specific recommendation.

 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, apcltypically Jess than that from livestock manure,
 it is possible that an bdorfrom the decomposition of organic matter may Be noticed. If this occurs, it generally
 disappears in a sriort time.

 Since bioeolide 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 njtrogen and other fertilizers to appropriate levels.

Bbsolids Generatbn
Bfosolids 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 btosolids that are
suitable for land application under state and federal regulations.

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

Biosolids Recvdina 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 bbsolids 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 soils and many of the trace metals from bbsolids are essential
nutrients for plants, animals and people.

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

While odor from biosolids applications is 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 in a short time. Injecting or incorporating bbsolids into the soil on cropland also reduces odor potential.

Bbsolids Land Applicatbn Regulations
Biosolids applbatbns 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, bbsolids are applied at agricultural rates for cropping purposes and for
reclamation/disturbed lands at rates designed to reestablish vegetatbn on the site.

Regulatbns 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 conditbns 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 biosolids to the fields approved for bbsolids applbatbns. SoB 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 bfosolids 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 sulfonyiurea herbicide, particular
attentbn should be paid to any label restrictions. High sofl 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 addition (alone
or in lime treated biosolids) may reduce manganese availability and thereby potentially reduce crop yields.

Bbsolids 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.

Mr. Divers operates a cow/calve and hay operation on these 179 acres of cultivated land in
Bedford County, Virginia.     Mr. Divers 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 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.

1 The planned biosolid application is an organic nutrient source application and at least two cutUngs of hay are planned. Therefore, the entire nitrogen application is planned as one
spring application. If this application of biosolid is completed between October 1 and February 29, the application must be applied at half the listed rate.
Commercial Application Methods:
        br - Broadcast ba • Banded sd • Sldedress
