CIRIA R126 (out of print), published in 1992, was produced to take account of The Control of Pollution (Silage, Slurry and Agricultural Fuel Oil) Regulations (SSAFO), introduced in 1991 to prevent agricultural incidents and limit the impacts of farm waste on the environment.

This updated guide incorporates the amendment of the SSAFO Regulations in 2010, the introduction of new relevant regulations and the evolution of the construction and storage technologies. It provides up-to-date information on the selection, sizing, costs and risks associated with farm waste storage as well as on the issues that may arise during the design, construction and operation phases.

The guide is divided into two parts. Part 1 describes the legislative context and presents the characteristics of farm wastes and principles of waste treatment and disposal. Part 2 covers the general design, construction and installation aspects and provides specific details on the storage facilities, including, but not limited to, earth-banked lagoons, concrete stores, weeping walls, slurry bags and anaerobic digestion systems.
