|Title||250||Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management|
|Part||1||Rules and Regulations Governing the Administration and Enforcement of the Fresh Water Wetlands Act|
|Type of Filing||Amendment|
|Effective||07/16/2014 to 12/31/2018|
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.
