Permitting of WMD Projects
Problem: In the event that all surface water permitting
authority is given to them, governing boards will not have
the check and balances of DER permitting for WMD projects.
The district may permit governing boards to operate works
of the district under conditions which it deems advisable.
Works of the District means those projects such as
impoundments, wells, streams and accompanying lands, which
have been officially adopted by the governing board.
