The Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources, in charge of overseeing program implementation of the state’s buffer law, is collecting public comment on key components of its buffer program.
The Requests for Comment and supporting documents are available on the BWSR Buffer Program website, bwsr.state.mn.us/buffers.
BWSR is looking for feedback on the following policies and model rules:
• initial election of jurisdiction policy
• enforcement procedures and administrative penalty order plan
• model county ordinance as an option for counties electing to exercise jurisdiction
• model watershed district rule as an option for districts electing to exercise jurisdiction
BWSR officials note that comments from stakeholders are a key part of the process and will be considered during policy development. Anticipated action on these policies is expected at BWSR’s Jan. 25, 2017, board meeting.
Information and comments on the policies and model rules will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 9, 2017.
Comments may be submitted via email to [email protected] or via U.S. mail to David Weirens, Assistant Director for Programs and Policy, BWSR, 520 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.
