32.2.301 DETERMINATION WHETHER FEE REQUIRED
(1) When an application for a lease, permit, contract,
license or certificate is expected to result in the department incurring
expenses in excess of $2,500 to compile an environmental impact statement, the
applicant must be required to pay a fee in an amount which the department
reasonably estimates, as set forth in this sub-chapter, will be expended
to gather information and data necessary to compile an EIS.
(2) The department will determine within 30 days
after a completed application is filed whether it will be necessary to compile
an environmental impact statement and assess a fee as prescribed by this rule.
If it is determined that an environmental impact statement is necessary, the
department must make a preliminary estimate of the costs to compile the
statement. This estimate will include a summary of the data and information
needs and the itemized cost of acquiring the data and information, including
salaries, equipment costs and any other expense associated with the collection
of data and information for the EIS.
