Or. Admin. R. 632-030-0005 - Purpose and Application of These Rules

Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

(1) These rules implement the purposes of the Mined Land Reclamation Act as established in ORS 517.760.
(2) These rules prescribe procedures for obtaining an operating permit and for complying with the other requirements of the Oregon Mined Land Reclamation Act. These rules apply to all operating permits, including those for non-aggregate mineral mines and chemical process mines, except where the provisions of OAR chapter 632, division 35 or 37 control. These rules do not address exploration activities. The requirements for exploration permits are addressed in OAR chapter 632, division 33.
(3) Applicants seeking operating permits from the Department should be aware that other state, federal, and local agencies may require the applicant to obtain approval prior to operation. For example, the Department of Environmental Quality may require permits for air quality and water quality. Where reasonable, the Department will coordinate with other agencies to avoid duplication on the part of applicants. An operating permit from the Department does not constitute authorization to proceed without approval of other agencies, if required. It is the applicant's responsibility to obtain other necessary permits.
