|Amending the Dam Safety and Encroachments Act
|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to amend the Dam Safety and Encroachments Act.
My bill will require the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to declare a dam abandoned if it no longer has the ability to impound or store water or any other fluid.
This legislation will help small property owners in abandoning a dam on their property that is inoperable, unneeded, and yet still accrues yearly fees.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation.
Introduced as HB1882
