62. In all cases in which the construction of a composting area, animal waste storage facility or building for raising livestock is not prohibited in the intermediate bacteriological protection zone for groundwater withdrawals, the facility must be designed to ensure watertightness and must be constructed under the supervision of a professional.
In addition, the watertightness of a composting area or animal waste storage facility constructed in such a zone must be assessed by a professional every 10 years.
A professional having carried out an assessment referred to in the second paragraph must send to the person responsible for groundwater withdrawals and to the Minister a watertightness certificate or a recommendation concerning the corrective measures required to make the facility watertight after a watertightness deficiency is noted.
The corrective measures required to make a facility watertight must be completed no later than 1 year following receipt of the professional’s recommendation. They must be carried out under the supervision of a professional who must forward a watertightness certificate to the person responsible for withdrawals and to the Minister as soon as possible.
A copy of the watertightness certificate must be sent as soon as possible to the regional county municipalities whose territory intersects with the intermediate protection zones concerned.
