act on the request within 60 days. In cases described in this paragraph, the deadline is

law, or order. Final approval of an agency receiving a request is not considered a process

prior approval is granted.

(f) An agency may extend the time limit in subdivision 2 before the end of the
initial 60-day period by providing written notice of the extension to the applicant. The
notification must state the reasons for the extension and its anticipated length, which may
not exceed 60 days unless approved by the applicant.

Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 103G.222, subdivision 1, is amended to
read:


Subdivision 1.

Requirements.

(a) Wetlands must not be drained or filled, wholly
or partially, unless replaced by restoring or creating wetland areas of at least equal
public value under a replacement plan approved as provided in section 103G.2242, a
replacement plan under a local governmental unit's comprehensive wetland protection
and management plan approved by the board under section 103G.2243, or, if a permit to
mine is required under section 93.481, under a mining reclamation plan approved by the
commissioner under the permit to mine. Mining reclamation plans shall apply the same
principles and standards for replacing wetlands by restoration or creation of wetland areas
that are applicable to mitigation plans approved as provided in section 103G.2242. Public
value must be determined in accordance with section 103B.3355 or a comprehensive
wetland protection and management plan established under section 103G.2243. Sections
103G.221 to 103G.2372 also apply to excavation in permanently and semipermanently
flooded areas of types 3, 4, and 5 wetlands.

(b) Replacement must be guided by the following principles in descending order
of priority:

(1) avoiding the direct or indirect impact of the activity that may destroy or diminish
the wetland;

(2) minimizing the impact by limiting the degree or magnitude of the wetland
activity and its implementation;

(3) rectifying the impact by repairing, rehabilitating, or restoring the affected
wetland environment;

(4) reducing or eliminating the impact over time by preservation and maintenance
operations during the life of the activity;

(5) compensating for the impact by restoring a wetland; and

(6) compensating for the impact by replacing or providing substitute wetland
resources or environments.

For a project involving the draining or filling of wetlands in an amount not exceeding
10,000 square feet more than the applicable amount in section 103G.2241, subdivision 9,
paragraph (a), the local government unit may make an on-site sequencing determination
without a written alternatives analysis from the applicant.

(c) If a wetland is located in a cultivated field, then replacement must be
accomplished through restoration only without regard to the priority order in paragraph
(b), provided that a deed restriction is placed on the altered wetland prohibiting
nonagricultural use for at least ten years.

(d) new text beginIf a wetland is drained under section 103G.2241, subdivision 2, paragraphs
(b) and (e), the local government unit may require a deed restriction that prohibits
nonagricultural use for at least ten years unless the drained wetland is replaced as provided
under this section. The local government unit may require the deed restriction if it
determines the wetland area drained is at risk of conversion to a nonagricultural use within
ten years based on the zoning classification, proximity to a municipality or full service
road, or other criteria as determined by the local government unit.

design or safety standards or requirements, excluding new roads or roads expanded solely
for additional traffic capacity lanes. This paragraph only applies to authorities for public
transportation projects that:

(1) minimize the amount of wetland filling or draining associated with the project
and consider mitigating important site-specific wetland functions on-site;

(2) except as provided in clause (3), submit project-specific reports to the board, the
Technical Evaluation Panel, the commissioner of natural resources, and members of the
public requesting a copy at least 30 days prior to construction that indicate the location,
amount, and type of wetlands to be filled or drained by the project or, alternatively,
convene an annual meeting of the parties required to receive notice to review projects to
be commenced during the upcoming year; and

(3) for minor and emergency maintenance work impacting less than 10,000 square
feet, submit project-specific reports, within 30 days of commencing the activity, to the
board that indicate the location, amount, and type of wetlands that have been filled
or drained.

Those required to receive notice of public transportation projects may appeal
minimization, delineation, and on-site mitigation decisions made by the public
transportation authority to the board according to the provisions of section 103G.2242,
subdivision 9
. The Technical Evaluation Panel shall review minimization and delineation
decisions made by the public transportation authority and provide recommendations
regarding on-site mitigation if requested to do so by the local government unit, a
contiguous landowner, or a member of the Technical Evaluation Panel.

Except for state public transportation projects, for which the state Department of
Transportation is responsible, the board must replace the wetlands, and wetland areas of
public waters if authorized by the commissioner or a delegated authority, drained or filled
by public transportation projects on existing roads.

Public transportation authorities at their discretion may deviate from federal and
state design standards on existing road projects when practical and reasonable to avoid
wetland filling or draining, provided that public safety is not unreasonably compromised.
The local road authority and its officers and employees are exempt from liability for
any tort claim for injury to persons or property arising from travel on the highway and
related to the deviation from the design standards for construction or reconstruction under
this paragraph. This paragraph does not preclude an action for damages arising from
negligence in construction or maintenance on a highway.
