27   structure.
28     Sec. 20.  Section 455B.165, subsections 2, 3, and

 3   parties negotiate.
 4     b.  The A written waiver under this
subsection
 5   becomes effective only upon the recording of the

 8   filed waiver shall preclude enforcement by the state
 9   of this part section 455B.162 as it relates to a
10   distance requirement between the animal feeding
11   operation structure and the location or object
12   benefiting from the separation distance requirement.

19   storage structures established by the department shall
20   account for special design characteristics of animal
21   feeding operations, including all of the following:
22     a.  The lining of the structure shall be
23   constructed with materials deemed suitable by the
24   department in order to minimize seepage loss through
25   the lining's seal.

44   remain where located, the department shall require
45   that a device be installed to allow monitoring of the
46   water in the drain tile line.  The department shall
47   also require the installation of a device to allow
48   shutoff of the drain tile lines, if the drain tile
49   lines do not have a surface outlet accessible on the
50   property where the structure is located.

 5   to a visual inspection of the site where the unformed
 6   manure storage structure is located.  The department
 7   shall inspect the site at a reasonable time after
 8   providing at least twenty-four hours' notice to the
 9   person owning or managing the confinement feeding
10   operation.  The visual inspection shall include, but
