(1) Notwithstanding OAR 690-521-0400(2), the Department may reassign part or all of permanent mitigation credits that were used to satisfy a mitigation obligation if:
(a) The ground water permit application to which the credits were assigned is denied or withdrawn;
(b) The ground water permit application to which the credits were assigned is amended and the mitigation obligation is reduced;
(c) The final order issued approving the ground water permit application to which the credits were assigned expires pursuant to OAR 690-505-0620;
(d) The ground water permit to which the credits were assigned is subsequently cancelled or partially cancelled resulting in a reduced mitigation obligation;
(e) The subsequent ground water certificate is issued for less ground water use than originally allowed under the permit and there is a corresponding reduction in mitigation obligation;
(f) The subsequent ground water certificate to which the credits were assigned is cancelled, or partially cancelled resulting in a reduced mitigation obligation; or
(g) The mitigation credits are assigned to a permit for municipal or quasi-municipal use issued under OAR 690-505-0620 with an incremental development plan under OAR 690-505-0625 and the permit holder requests to re-assign credits to another such existing permit of their own or to another municipal or quasi-municipal entity that holds a groundwater permit issued under OAR 690-505-0620 with an incremental development plan under OAR 690-505-0625, provided the reassignment is consistent with the requirements of OAR 690-505-0610 (4) and OAR 690-505-0625. The permit holder requesting the re-assignment of credits under this provision shall submit to the Department an updated incremental development plan.
