Or. Admin. R. 690-051-0080 - Application of Standards to Preliminary Permits

(1) Preliminary Permit applications shall be approved unless the Director finds the proposed project would not be in the public interest because of significant adverse impacts on natural resources or other uses of the water involved. The Commission shall act on all Preliminary Permits proposed in a designated Protected Area.
(2) Information in the application and hearing record will be used to assess the public interest and to form conditions to be included in the Commission or Director's order on the application. Approval of a Preliminary Permit application shall not convey the right to construct any project facilities. Issuance of a Preliminary Permit shall not constitute approval or assurance of approval for any subsequent application for hydroelectric license for the project. Failure to comply with conditions in the approval order may result in the cancellation of the Preliminary Permit.
