REGULATORY PETITION REGISTRY & DOCUMENT ACCESS
Petition No. P2006-15
LCB File No. R138-06
Nevada Administrative Code: NAC 445A.232
Description of Petition: Clarification of Certain Fee Categories for Mining Facility Permits: This regulation amends NAC 445A.232. The regulation provides clarification in the description for several fee categories of mining facility permits. As way of background, Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 445A.425 establishes authority to adopt regulations to maintain the quality of the waters of the State pursuant to the State Water Pollution Control Law and NRS 445A.430 establishes specific authority regarding fees for water pollution control permits. Water Pollution Control Permits for mining operations are categorized by the specific type of operation and the capacity of the submitted facility designs. The current fee categories describe dewatering of a mine by the gallons of process water discharged or by the tonnage the mine facilities chemically process. This proposed regulation changes the language from discharge of process water to discharge of dewatering water; it also clarifies the tonnage categories by the tonnage the facility is designed to process.
