Summary

Surface water withdrawals exceeding three million gallons during any one month require a permit; a permit will only be granted if the Department of Health and Environmental Control determines that the proposed water use is reasonable. Some exemptions, including for emergency withdrawals, instream mining operations, and hydropower generation, apply. This legislation contains information on permitting, registration, and reporting requirements, and addresses interbasin water transfer, construction notices, and temporary permits.
