The current standard rules permit SR2010No4 (mobile plant for landspreading) does not list wash waters from these intermediate ABP sites in either table 2.2A or table 2.2B. Until this omission is corrected the Environment Agency will regulate the spreading of wash waters from intermediate plants handling ABP according to this RPS.
