At its regular business meeting on September 12, 2007 in Binghamton, New York, the Commission: (1) Convened a panel session on New York State's involvement in the Chesapeake Bay Program, (2) approved a proposed rulemaking action to amend the consumptive use provisions of 18 CFR Part 806 relating to agricultural water use, and (3) approved a grant and four contracts. It also conducted a public hearing to approve certain water resources projects and rescind one docket approval. See the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below for more details on these actions.
Review and Approval of Projects
This document contains proposed rules that would amend project review regulations to clarify the definition of ``agricultural water use'' and to provide a qualified exception to the consumptive use approval requirements for agricultural water use projects. In addition, this proposed rule would make a technical correction to an error in the ``Authority'' citation for Part 808.
