(a) These regulations shall apply to any dam or other structure which impounds, or diverts waters, located on those watercourses which are listed in an annual publication by the Commissioner of stocked watercourses and their tributaries, or parts thereof, the flow of which he finds reasonably necessary to the protection and maintenance of such stocking, which are in operation on the effective date of these regulations or which subsequently commence operation.

(1) those at locations with drainage areas of less than three (3) square miles in area;

(5) those which have no capability of controlling the discharge; and
