The milkroom must be sealed and walled with smooth and easily cleaned material. The floor must be of concrete or other impervious material, graded to provide drainage. The milkroom must have a trapped floor drain, and the waste collected in the floor drain must be piped away from the building to avoid pooling and creating other unsanitary conditions. All openings must be screened to prevent the entrance of flies and rodents. All outside doors and windows must be closed during dusty weather. All outside doors must open outward and be solid and self-closing unless they are provided with tight-fitting screen doors that open outward and are self-closing.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Source:</b> SL 1975, ch 16, &nbsp;1; 12 SDR 128, 12 SDR 154, effective July 1, 1986; 19 SDR 61, effective October 26, 1992.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>General Authority:</b> SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-32-18">40-32-18(5).</A></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Law Implemented:</b> SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-32-18">40-32-18(5).</A></p> </div> </body> </html>
