AMENDMENT TO CONSUMPTIVE USE PERMIT DURATION


Section 373.236 Duration of Permits.

1) Subject to the provisions of this section, pPermits may be
granted for any period of time not exceeding twenty years. The
governing board or the department may base duration of permits on
a reasonable system of classification according to source of
supply or type of use, or both.

2) Where a Regional Water Supply Plan adopted by the governing
board identifies a geographic area as not being subject to water
shortages within 20 years, permits in those areas shall be for
two five year terms, with a third term of not more than five
years, which shall expire on the same date as all other permits
in the area using the same source of supply. At the termination
of the first two five year terms, the governing board shall
modify the permit so as to eliminate or prevent significant harm
to water resources or the ecosystem, or to require water
conservation measures. The governing board shall issue public
notice and notice to interested parties of the modifications.

3) Where a Regional Water Supply Plan adopted by the governing
board identifies a geographic area as being subject to water
shortages within 20 years, permits in those areas shall be for
any period of time not exceeding the time when a water shortage
is anticipated. All permits granted by the governing board under
this subsection which use the same source of supply shall
terminate on the same date, so as to facilitate the competing
application process set forth in Section 373.233. The governing
board shall impose conditions on permits renewed pursuant to this
subsection as necessary to eliminate or prevent significant harm
to water resources or the ecosystem, and to require water
conservation measures. The governing board shall issue public
notice and notice to interested parties of the competing
applications and of the conditions to be imposed on renewed
permits.


4) Q- The governing board or the department may authorize a
permit of duration of up to ten five year terms fifty years in
the case of a municipality or other governmental body or of a
public works or public service corporation where such a period is
required to provide for the retirement of bonds for the
construction of water works and waste disposal facilities. At
the termination of each five year term, the governing board shall
modify the permit as needed to eliminate or prevent significant
harm to water resources or the ecosystem, and to require water
conservation measures. The governing board shall issue public
notice and notice to interested parties of the modifications.
