registration or authorization for the purpose of expanding an 
existing confined feeding operation or manure storage facility and 
there is a residence within the minimum distance separation as 
determined under subsections (2) and (3) an approval officer or the 
Board may reduce the applicable minimum distance separation.
(8)  If there is an application to issue or amend an approval, 
registration or authorization for the purpose of expanding an 
existing confined feeding operation or manure storage facility and 
there is a residence within the minimum distance separation of the 
existing operation or facility as determined under subsection (9), 
the minimum distance separation calculated under subsections (2) 
and (3) does not apply with respect to that residence if an approval 
officer or the Board is satisfied that the residence was constructed 
after the owner or operator of the confined feeding operation or 
manure storage facility
	(a)	submitted an application under the Act for an approval, 
registration or authorization or for an amendment of an 
approval, registration or authorization,

feeding operation or manure storage facility described in 
subsection (8) is

or facility was constructed or if the calculation cannot 
be determined pursuant to clause (a).
(10)  If the application referred to in subsection (8) is to issue or 
amend a registration or authorization, an approval officer or the 
Board may, based on a consideration of the effects on the 
community, if any, within the minimum distance separation of the 
confined feeding operation or manure storage facility and on 
consideration of the appropriate use of land, determine that 
subsection (8) does not apply to that application.
(11)  If an approval officer or the Board determines that a confined 
feeding operation that has manure storage facilities or manure 
collection areas located on adjacent land parcels, is under the 
control of a single owner or operator, the approval officer or the 
Board must determine, for the purposes of calculating the 
minimum distance separation, whether that confined feeding 
operation is one or more operations.

23   Schedule 1 is repealed and the following is substituted:
Schedule 1  
 
Determination of Minimum 
Distance Separation
Definitions
1   In this Schedule,
	(a)	"dispersion factor" allows for a variance to the MDS 
due to the unique climatic and topographic influences at 
the site, and is determined in accordance with section 5;
	(b)	"expansion factor" applies only to expanding operations 
that are increasing the size of the facility to store more 
manure, composting materials and compost or to 
accommodate more livestock, and is determined in 
accordance with section 6;
	(c)	"exponent" (K) equals 0.365 for all categories or types 
of livestock;
	(d)	"Factor A" is the nuisance value of the category or type 
of livestock determined in accordance with Table 1;
	(e)	"MDS" means minimum distance separation determined 
in accordance with section 2;
	(f)	"MU" is a manure unit based on the amount of manure 
produced by a category and type of livestock 
determined in accordance with Table 1;
	(g)	"odour objective" means the odour objective 
determined in accordance with section 4;
	(h)	"odour production" means odour production determined 
in accordance with section 3;
	(i)	"technology factor" is the effect the manure system will 
have on reducing the odour nuisance level and is 
determined in accordance with section 7.
Minimum distance separation (MDS)
2   The MDS is measured from the outside walls of neighbouring 
residences (not property line) to the point closest to manure storage 
facilities or manure collection areas. The MDS is calculated in 
metres as follows:
	(a)	for new operations, MDS = (odour production(total))K x 
odour objective x dispersion factor, and
	(b)	for expanding operations, MDS = (odour 
production(total))K x odour objective x dispersion factor x 
expansion factor.
Odour production
3   Odour production (total)  is calculated by the following steps:
	(a)	LSU Factor (type of livestock) = Factor A x technology factor 
x MU;
	(b)	odour production (type of livestock) = LSU factor(type of livestock) 
x number of animals (type of livestock);
	(c)	odour production(total) = sum of odour production from 
each type of livestock.
Odour objective
4   The odour objective factor must be determined according to the 
category of land zoning and residential type as follows:
	(a)	for Category 1 - residences on land zoned for 
agricultural purposes (e.g., farmstead, acreage 
residences), odour objective factor 41.04;
	(b)	for Category 2 - residences on land zoned for non-
agricultural purposes (e.g., country residential, rural 
commercial businesses), odour objective factor 54.72;
	(c)	for Category 3 - residences on land zoned for high use 
recreational or commercial purposes, odour objective 
factor 68.40;
	(d)	for Category 4 - residences on land zoned for 
large-scale country residential, rural hamlet, village, 
town or city, odour objective factor 109.44.
Dispersion factor
5(1)  Unless information is provided to establish otherwise to an 
approval officer's or the Board's satisfaction, the dispersion factor 
must equal 1.0.
(2)  The dispersion factor, if applied, must be determined for the 
following unique conditions that can influence dispersion:
	(a)	topography factor (DT), the effect of topographical 
features on air dispersion,
	(b)	screening factor (DS), the effect of natural or 
constructed screening which reduces wind effects at the 
manure storage facility, and 
	(c)	micro-climate factor (DW), the effect of temperature, 
humidity and wind direction and intensity that 
demonstrates significant alteration in odour intensity or 
frequency of occurrence in relation to neighbouring 
residences.
Expansion factor
6(1)  Unless information is provided to establish otherwise to an 
approval officer's or to the Board's satisfaction, the expansion 
factor must equal 1.0.
(2)  Despite subsection (1), an approval officer or the Board must 
apply an expansion factor of 0.77 when calculating the minimum 
distance separation if the confined feeding operation or manure 
storage facility cannot meet the minimum separation distance 
without the use of this factor. 
(3)  For the purposes of subsection (2), an approval officer or the 
Board may apply the expansion factor of 0.77 only if 3 or more 
years have passed since the completion of the most recent 
construction arising out of an approval, registration or 
authorization or an amendment of an approval, registration or 
authorization.
Technology factor
7   The technology factor must be determined according to Table 1 
unless information is provided to establish otherwise to an 
approval officer's or to the Board's satisfaction.
New types of livestock
8   An approval officer or the Board may determine, within a 
category of livestock specified in the Schedules to the Agricultural 
Operations, Part 2 Matters Regulation (AR 257/2001) for an 
unlisted type of livestock, based on manure production, the 
relevant factors, units and other measurements required to apply 
this Regulation to that type.

Land Base Requirements
Tables 7 to 30 specify the required land base for the amount 
of manure, composting materials or compost that may be 
applied to a parcel of land, subject to the limitations noted 
below. Producers have the option of using these tables or 
submitting a nutrient management plan to show that they 
have the required land base for manure production. The 
tables are based on average soil fertility levels in the four soil 
zones and manure, composting materials or compost nutrient 
from typical production systems. The tables are based on a 
one-time application of manure, composting materials or 
compost based on nitrogen. The assumed supply of nutrients 
from manure, composting materials or compost are listed in 
Table 4. These land base manure application rates do not take 
into account other fertilizer nutrients which may be used.
	(g)	by repealing Table 4;
	(h)	after Table 4, by striking out:
Manure Production Volumes
Tables 5 and 6 contain average manure volumes expected 
from common categories and types of livestock. Volumes are 
from typical housing systems and include added water 
(spillage and fresh water) as well as bedding and spilled feed. 
These are variables and should be taken into account and 
adjustments made where appropriate. These volumes are 
used to determine the manure storage volumes as well as for 
determining manure nutrient amounts used for the land base 
requirements.
	(i)	by repealing Tables 5 to 30.

26   This Regulation comes into force on October 1, 2006.
