OFA suggested inclusion of definitions and other revisions to the draft On-Site and Excess Soil Management Regulation including recommending that core sampling be used to detect soil contamination instead of only “visual and olfactory” observations. OFA states that prime agricultural lands should be afforded protection under these regulations. OFA recommended that topsoil destined for reuse on agricultural land undergo testing at an agriculture-accredited laboratory, with soil health parameters included in the testing regime. OFA further recommended that generators of excess soils be required to eradicate invasive plants from excess soils destined for reuse. OFA also recommended that any traffic and transportation management plan include the impacts of dust, noise, truck traffic, etc. on agricultural crops, livestock, and the movement of farm vehicles.
