122 Neb. Admin. Code, ch. 26, § 005

A permit applicant or permittee may cease conducting regulated activities (by plugging and abandonment for wells and conducting restoration) rather than continue to operate and meet permit requirements as follows:

005.01 If the permittee decides to cease conducting regulated activities at a given time within the term of a permit which has been issued;
005.01A The permit may be modified to contain a new or additional schedule leading to timely cessation of activities; or
005.01B The permittee shall cease conducting permitted activities before noncompliance with any interim or final compliance schedule requirement already specified in the permit;
005.01C If the decision to cease conducting regulated activities is made before issuance of a permit whose term will include the termination date, the permit shall contain a schedule leading to termination which will ensure timely compliance with applicable requirements;
005.02 If the permittee is undecided whether to cease conducting regulated activities, the Director may issue or modify a permit to contain two schedules as follows:
005.02A Both schedules shall contain an identical interim deadline requiring a final decision on whether to cease conducting regulated activities or comply with applicable requirements;
005.02B One schedule shall lead to timely compliance with applicable requirements; and
005.02C The second schedule shall lead to cessation of regulated activities by a date which will ensure timely compliance with applicable requirements.
005.03 The applicant's or permittee's decision to cease conducting regulated activities shall be evidenced by a firm public commitment satisfactory to the Director, such as a resolution of the board of directors of a corporation.
