NOE - Notice of Exemption
In accordance with CA Water Code Section 6307, the Department of Water Resources is required to adopt, by regulation, a schedule of fees to cover the Department's reasonable budgetary costs in carrying out the supervision of dam safety. These proposed regulations set forth the Department's method for determining this fee schedule.
Annual fees are considered a modifcation and restructuring of existing annual rates for dam owners and will be used to meet operating expenses including wage rates, fringe benefits, repayment of General Fund Loans, and a prudent reserve.
