None of the provisions in this section shall be construed to deny an existing operation the opportunity to apply for and receive a permit under this chapter.
(2) Existing large and medium poultry CAFOs shall submit a nutrient management plan to the director for approval within one (1) year of the effective date of this chapter. An application fee shall not be required unless the CAFO is expanding.
(3) The owner of an existing poultry operation shall not increase the one-time animal capacity of the operation by ten percent (10%) or more without first obtaining a permit for the expansion as required by the provisions of this chapter. The ten percent (10%) increase is measured cumulatively from the original effective date of this chapter or the date the owner first obtained a permit.
