Rules Revision Public Comment Period

Notice of 45-day Public Comment Period for NMCWD Proposed Rule Revisions and Public Hearing

The Nine Mile Creek Watershed District (NMCWD) is soliciting comments on proposed revisions of its rules.  The revised rules (both clean and tracked changes versions) and a matrix explaining and supporting proposed rule revisions are available below.

Proposed rule changes were compiled from the feedback of permittees, NMCWD legal counsel and engineering consultants, NMCWD Board of Managers, and Technical Advisory Committee. Proposed revisions are broken into two types: 1) those that are merely to correct, improve, or clarify the operation of the rules, referred to as “housekeeping” changes, 2) larger substantive changes (those not labelled “housekeeping”).
