Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 115.035, is amended to read:

 

115.035 EXTERNAL PEER REVIEW OF WATER QUALITY STANDARDS.

 

(a) When the commissioner convenes an external peer review panel during the promulgation or amendment of water quality standards, the commissioner must provide notice and take public comment on the charge questions for the external peer review panel and must allow written and oral public comment as part of the external peer review panel process.  Every new or revised numeric water quality standard must be supported by a technical support document that provides the scientific basis for the proposed standard and that has undergone external, scientific peer review.  Numeric water quality standards in which the agency is adopting, without change, a United States Environmental Protection Agency criterion that has been through peer review are not subject to this paragraph.  Documentation of the external peer review panel, including the name or names of the peer reviewer or reviewers, must be included in the statement of need and reasonableness for the water quality standard.  If the commissioner does not convene an external peer review panel during the promulgation or amendment of water quality standards, the commissioner must state the reason an external peer review panel will not be convened in the statement of need and reasonableness.

 

(b) Every technical support document developed by the agency must be released in draft form for public comment before peer review and before finalizing the technical support document.

 

(c) The commissioner must provide public notice and information about the external peer review through the request for comments published at the beginning of the rulemaking process for the numeric water quality standard, and:

 

(1) the request for comments must identify the draft technical support document and where the document can be found;

 

(2) the request for comments must include a proposed charge for the external peer review and request comments on the charge;


Journal of the House - 77th Day - Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - Top of Page 7925

(3) all comments received during the public comment period must be made available to the external peer reviewers; and

 

(4) if the agency is not soliciting external peer review because the agency is adopting a United States Environmental Protection Agency criterion without change, that must be noted in the request for comments.

 

(d) The purpose of the external peer review is to evaluate whether the technical support document and proposed standard are based on sound scientific knowledge, methods, and practices.  The external peer review must be conducted according to the guidance in the most recent edition of the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Peer Review Handbook.  Peer reviewers must not have participated in developing the scientific basis of the standard.

 

(e) The type of review and the number of peer reviewers depends on the nature of the science underlying the standard.  When the agency is developing significant new science or science that expands significantly beyond current documented scientific practices or principles, a panel review must be used.

 

(f) In response to the findings of the external peer review, the draft technical support document must be revised as appropriate.  The findings of the external peer review must be documented and attached to the final technical support document, which must be an exhibit as part of the statement of need and reasonableness in the rulemaking to adopt the new or revised numeric water quality standard.  The final technical support document must note changes made in response to the external peer review.

 

(b) (g) By December 15 each year, the commissioner shall post on the agency's Web site a report identifying the water quality standards development work in progress or completed in the past year, the lead agency scientist for each development effort, and opportunities for public input.

 

Sec. 5.  [115.455] EFFLUENT LIMITATION COMPLIANCE.

 

To the extent allowable under federal law, for a municipality that constructs a publicly owned treatment works facility or for an industrial national pollutant discharge elimination system and state disposal system permit holder that constructs a treatment works facility to comply with a new or modified effluent limitation, compliance with any new or modified effluent limitation adopted after construction begins that would require additional capital investment is required no sooner than 16 years after the date the facility begins operating.

 

EFFECTIVE DATE.  This section is effective the day following final enactment.

 

Sec. 6.  Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 116.07, subdivision 4d, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 4d.  Permit fees.  (a) The agency may collect permit fees in amounts not greater than those necessary to cover the reasonable costs of developing, reviewing, and acting upon applications for agency permits and implementing and enforcing the conditions of the permits pursuant to agency rules.  Permit fees shall not include the costs of litigation.  The fee schedule must reflect reasonable and routine direct and indirect costs associated with permitting, implementation, and enforcement.  The agency may impose an additional enforcement fee to be collected for a period of up to two years to cover the reasonable costs of implementing and enforcing the conditions of a permit under the rules of the agency.  Water fees under this paragraph are subject to legislative approval under section 16A.1283.  Any money collected under this paragraph shall be deposited in the environmental fund.

 

(b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), the agency shall collect an annual fee from the owner or operator of all stationary sources, emission facilities, emissions units, air contaminant treatment facilities, treatment facilities, potential air contaminant storage facilities, or storage facilities subject to a notification, permit, or license requirement under this chapter, subchapters I and V of the federal Clean Air Act, United States Code, title 42,


Journal of the House - 77th Day - Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - Top of Page 7926

section 7401 et seq., or rules adopted thereunder.  The annual fee shall be used to pay for all direct and indirect reasonable costs, including legal costs, required to develop and administer the notification, permit, or license program requirements of this chapter, subchapters I and V of the federal Clean Air Act, United States Code, title 42, section 7401 et seq., or rules adopted thereunder.  Those costs include the reasonable costs of reviewing and acting upon an application for a permit; implementing and enforcing statutes, rules, and the terms and conditions of a permit; emissions, ambient, and deposition monitoring; preparing generally applicable regulations; responding to federal guidance; modeling, analyses, and demonstrations; preparing inventories and tracking emissions; and providing information to the public about these activities.

 

(c) The agency shall set fees that:

 

(1) will result in the collection, in the aggregate, from the sources listed in paragraph (b), of an amount not less than $25 per ton of each volatile organic compound; pollutant regulated under United States Code, title 42, section 7411 or 7412 (section 111 or 112 of the federal Clean Air Act); and each pollutant, except carbon monoxide, for which a national primary ambient air quality standard has been promulgated;

 

(2) may result in the collection, in the aggregate, from the sources listed in paragraph (b), of an amount not less than $25 per ton of each pollutant not listed in clause (1) that is regulated under this chapter or air quality rules adopted under this chapter; and

 

(3) shall collect, in the aggregate, from the sources listed in paragraph (b), the amount needed to match grant funds received by the state under United States Code, title 42, section 7405 (section 105 of the federal Clean Air Act).

 

The agency must not include in the calculation of the aggregate amount to be collected under clauses (1) and (2) any amount in excess of 4,000 tons per year of each air pollutant from a source.  The increase in air permit fees to match federal grant funds shall be a surcharge on existing fees.  The commissioner may not collect the surcharge after the grant funds become unavailable.  In addition, the commissioner shall use nonfee funds to the extent practical to match the grant funds so that the fee surcharge is minimized.

 

(d) To cover the reasonable costs described in paragraph (b), the agency shall provide in the rules promulgated under paragraph (c) for an increase in the fee collected in each year by the percentage, if any, by which the Consumer Price Index for the most recent calendar year ending before the beginning of the year the fee is collected exceeds the Consumer Price Index for the calendar year 1989.  For purposes of this paragraph the Consumer Price Index for any calendar year is the average of the Consumer Price Index for all-urban consumers published by the United States Department of Labor, as of the close of the 12-month period ending on August 31 of each calendar year.  The revision of the Consumer Price Index that is most consistent with the Consumer Price Index for calendar year 1989 shall be used.

 

(e) Any money collected under paragraphs (b) to (d) must be deposited in the environmental fund and must be used solely for the activities listed in paragraph (b).

 

(f) Permit applicants who wish to construct, reconstruct, or modify a project may offer to reimburse the agency for the costs of staff time or consultant services needed to expedite the preapplication process and permit development process through the final decision on the permit, including the analysis of environmental review documents.  The reimbursement shall be in addition to permit application fees imposed by law.  When the agency determines that it needs additional resources to develop the permit application in an expedited manner, and that expediting the development is consistent with permitting program priorities, the agency may accept the reimbursement.  The commissioner must give the applicant an estimate of costs to be incurred by the commissioner.  The estimate must include a brief description of the tasks to be performed, a schedule for completing the tasks, and the estimated cost for each task.  The applicant and the commissioner must enter into a written agreement detailing the estimated costs for the expedited permit decision-making process to be incurred by the agency.  The agreement


Journal of the House - 77th Day - Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - Top of Page 7927

must also identify staff anticipated to be assigned to the project.  The commissioner must not issue a permit until the applicant has paid all fees in full.  The commissioner must refund any unobligated balance of fees paid.  Reimbursements accepted by the agency are appropriated to the agency for the purpose of developing the permit or analyzing environmental review documents.  Reimbursement by a permit applicant shall precede and not be contingent upon issuance of a permit; shall not affect the agency's decision on whether to issue or deny a permit, what conditions are included in a permit, or the application of state and federal statutes and rules governing permit determinations; and shall not affect final decisions regarding environmental review.

 

(g) The fees under this subdivision are exempt from section 16A.1285.

 

Sec. 7.  WETLAND REPLACEMENT; FRAMEWORKS FOR IN-LIEU FEE PROGRAM.

 

The Board of Water and Soil Resources, in cooperation with the United States Army Corps of Engineers, must complete the planning frameworks and other program application requirements necessary for federal approval of an in-lieu fee program, as authorized under Minnesota Statutes, section 103G.2242, in the Red River Basin and the greater than 80 percent area.  The planning frameworks must contain a prioritization strategy for selecting and implementing mitigation activities based on a watershed approach that includes consideration of historic resource loss within watersheds and the extent to which mitigation can address priority watershed needs.  The board must consider the recommendations of the report "Siting of Wetland Mitigation in Northeast Minnesota," dated March 7, 2014, and implementation of Minnesota Statutes, section 103B.3355, paragraphs (e) and (f), in developing the proposed planning frameworks for applicable watersheds.  The board must complete the work and pursue approval of the in-lieu fee program in these areas consistent with the applicable requirements, stakeholder and agency review processes, and approval time frames in Code of Federal Regulations, title 33, section 332.  The board must submit the planning frameworks to the chairs and ranking minority members of the house of representatives and the senate committees and divisions with jurisdiction over environment and natural resources upon receiving federal approval."
