"Discharge" means and includes, but is not limited to, spilling, leaking, seeping, pouring,
injecting, emitting, emptying, disposing, releasing or dumping regulated substances to the soils,air, groundwater or surface water of the city. Release does not include the use of a regulatedsubstance in accordance with the appropriate use intended or specified by the manufacturer ofsubstances, provided that such use is not prohibited by federal, state or local regulations. Release shall not include release specifically authorized by federal or state permits.
"EPA" means the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
"Groundwater divide" means the topographic and/or the geologic strata that physically
divide the groundwater flow of one recharge area from another.
"Groundwater source" means any well, spring, tunnel, adit, or other underground
opening from or through which groundwater flows or is pumped from subsurface water-bearingformations.
"Hazardous waste" is as defined by the EPA.
"Land management strategies" mean zoning and non-zoning controls which include, but
are not limited to, the following: zoning and subdivision ordinances, site plan review, design andoperating standards, source prohibitions, purchase of property and development rights, publiceducation programs, groundwater monitoring, household hazardous waste collection programs,water conservation programs, memoranda of understanding, written contracts and agreements,and so forth.
"Point source" means any discernible, confined and discrete source of pollutants or
contaminants, including but not limited to, any site, pipe, ditch, channel, tunnel, conduit, well,discrete fissure, container, rolling stock, animal feeding operation with more than ten (10)animal units, landfill, or vessel or other floating craft, from which pollutants are or may bedischarged.
"Pollution source" means point source discharges of contaminants to groundwater or
potential discharges of the liquid forms of "extremely hazardous substances" which are storedin containers in excess of "applicable threshold planning quantities" as specified in SARA TitleIII. Examples of possible pollution sources include, but are not limited to, the following: storagefacilities that store the liquid forms of extremely hazardous substances, septic tanks, drainfields, Class V underground injection wells, landfills, open dumps, landfilling of sludge andseptage, manure piles, salt piles, pit privies, drain lines and animal feeding operations withmore than ten (10) animal units. The following clarify the definition of pollution source:
1. "Animal feeding operation" means a lot or facility where the following conditions
are met: animals have been or will be stabled or confined and fed or maintainedfor a total of forty-five (45) days or more in any twelve (12) month period, andcrops, vegetation forage growth, or post-harvest residues are not sustained inthe normal growing season over any portion of the lot or facility. Two or moreanimal feeding operations under common ownership are considered to be asingle feeding operation if they adjoin each other, if they use a common area, orif they use a common system for the disposal of wastes.
2. "Animal unit" means a unit of measurement for any animal feeding operation
calculated by adding the following numbers: the number of slaughter and feedercattle multiplied by 1.0, plus the number of manure dairy cattle multiplied by 1.4,plus the number of swine weighing over fifty-five (55) pounds multiplied by 0.4,plus the number of sheep multiplied by 1.0, plus the number of horses multipliedby 2.0.
3. "Extremely hazardous substance" means those substances which are identified
in Section 302 (EHS) column of the "Title III List of Lists: Consolidated List ofChemicals Subject to the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-KnowAct (EPCRA) and Section 112(R) of the Clean Air Act, as Amended"(550B98017). A copy of this document may be obtained from: NCEPI, PO Box
42419, Cincinnati, OH 45202. Online ordering is also available athttp://www.epa.gov/ncepihom/orderpub.html.
"Potential contamination source" means any facility or site which employs an activity or
procedure which may potentially contaminate groundwater. A pollution source is also a potentialcontamination source.
"Regulatory agency" means any government agency with jurisdiction over hazardous
"Sanitary landfill" means a disposal site where solid wastes, including putrescible
wastes, or hazardous wastes, are disposed of on land by placing earth cover thereon.
"SARA Title III" means the Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act section
found in 40 CFR 300-302, pertaining to emergency response and right-to-know.
"Septic tank/drainfield system" means a system which is comprised of a septic tank and
a drainfield which accepts domestic wastewater from buildings or facilities for subsurfacetreatment and disposal. By their design, septic tank/drainfield system discharges cannot becontrolled with design standards.
"Wellhead" means the physical structure, facility, or device at the land surface from or
through which groundwater flows or is pumped from subsurface water-bearing formations. 8.44.040 Establishment of drinking water source protection zones.
There are established use districts to be known as zones one, two, three and four of the
drinking water source protection area, identified and described as follows:
Zone one is the area within a one hundred (100) foot radius from the wellhead ormargin of the spring collection area.
Zone two is the area within a two hundred fifty (250) day groundwater time oftravel to the wellhead or margin of the spring collection area, the boundary of theaquifer(s) which supplies water to the groundwater source, or the groundwaterdivide, whichever is closer. If the available data indicate a zone of increasedgroundwater velocity within the producing aquifer(s), time-of-travel calculationsshall be based on this data.
C. Zone three is the area within a three-year groundwater time of travel to the
wellhead or margin of the spring collection area, the boundary of the aquifer(s)which supplies water to the groundwater source, or the groundwater divide,whichever is closer. If the available data indicate a zone of increasedgroundwater velocity within the producing aquifer(s), time-of-travel calculationsshall be based on this data.
D. Zone four is the area within a fifteen (15) year groundwater time of travel to the
wellhead or margin of the spring collection area, the boundary of the aquifer(s)which supplies water to the groundwater source, or the groundwater divide,whichever is closer. If the available data indicate a zone of increasedgroundwater velocity within the producing aquifer(s), time-of-travel calculationsshall be based on this data. 8.44.050 Allowed uses.
The following uses shall be allowed within drinking water source protection zones:
Any use permitted within existing agricultural, single-family residential,multifamily residential and commercial districts so long as uses conform to therules and regulations of the regulatory agencies;
Any other land use where any building located on the property is incidental andaccessory to the primary open land use. 8.44.060 Prohibited uses.
The following uses or conditions shall be and are prohibited within the designated
drinking water source protection zones, whether or not such use or condition may otherwise beordinarily included as a part of a use allowed under Section 8.44.050 of this chapter.
Zone one--The location of any uncontrolled potential contamination source.
Zone two--The location of a pollution source unless its contaminated dischargescan be controlled with design standards.
C. Zones three and four--The location of a potential contamination source unless it
can be controlled through land management strategies. 8.44.070 Administration.
The rules, policies and procedures for administration of any source protection zone
established under this chapter, including without limitation those applicable to enforcement andpenalties, shall be the same as provided in the existing zoning ordinance for Manti.
STORAGE AND HANDLING All reagents (A1 to A8) should be stored at -20°C. All reagents can be used until the expiration date printed on the labels. Avoid multiple freezing and thawing cycles of reagents (< 2). If used sporadically, prepare aliquots of the reagents. Cool all reagents during the working steps.
