Regulation Authority :

RIGL Chapters 2-1-20.1, 42-17.1, and 42-17.6, as amended.

Purpose and Reason :

Amendments to the OWTS and Wetland Rules are necessary in order to establish and implement a new Joint OWTS/Wetlands application and permit for single family residential lots. This will streamline application processing by incorporating efficiencies in staff resources, and create a more predictable and timely process for applicants, while providing additional opportunities for environmental protection of wetland resources. No changes were made to the proposed amendments as a result of the public hearing.
