Kan. Admin. Regs. § 98-4-5 - Procedure for granting emergency permits

(a) A permit may be granted on an emergency basis if evidence is presented to the director that clearly identifies the situation as an emergency. "Emergency" shall mean an unusual condition that could not have reasonably been expected or foreseen and in which it can be anticipated that damage can be avoided or reduced by prompt weather modification action.
(b) Upon the applicant's presentation of evidence satisfactory to the director that an emergency exists or could reasonably be expected to exist in the very near future that could be alleviated or overcome by weather modification activities, an emergency permit may be issued by the director to an individual holding a license issued under K.S.A. 82a-1401 et seq., and amendments thereto. Coincident with the issuance of the permit, the information contained in the permit shall be released by the director to the news media in the area intended to be affected.
(c) If the permit holder desires to continue the permit activities and the director grants an emergency permit, a date for the public hearing shall be set by the director within 10 days after the permit is granted. The permit holder shall be responsible for providing public notice of the hearing through the local news media in the area. At the public hearing, the permit holder shall describe the following:
(1) The objectives of the emergency action;
(2) the success to date; and
(3) any future plans under the permit.

On the basis of the information presented at the public hearing, the decision of whether to revoke the emergency permit, modify it, or allow continued operation under conditions specified by the director shall be made by the director.
