Description of Petition:

Petition 2001-07 (LCB R042-01) permanently amends NAC 445A.810 to 445A.925, the underground injection control (UIC) program. The amended regulations provide that "other Sensitive Groundwater Areas" can be determined to meet compliance with the proposed regulations. The regulations revise outdated Nevada Revised Statute references, expand minor permit modification criteria and logistics, expand criteria for a temporary permit, outline methods to establish permit limits in the absence of specific standards, and repeal the prohibition of injection of treated effluent. New definitions for cesspool, Class V Rule, delineation, drywell, groundwater protection area, improved sinkhole, other sensitive groundwater area, motor vehicle waste disposal well, point of injection, sanitary waste, septic system, source water assessment and protection program, and subsurface fluid distribution system are defined. Restrictions are imposed on Motor Vehicle Waste Disposal wells. Fees for renewals in NAC 445A.872 are reduced, repealed and incorporated into the existing annual fee. This fee category is expanded to included major modifications.
