Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 115.03, is amended by adding a subdivision
to read:

new text begin Subd. 5e. new text end

new text begin Sugar beet storage. new text end

new text begin The commissioner must not require a sugar beet company
that has a current national pollutant discharge elimination system permit or state disposal
system permit to install an engineered liner for a storm water runoff pond at a remote storage
site for sugar beets unless a risk assessment confirms that there is significant impact on
groundwater and that an engineered liner is necessary to prevent, control, or abate water
pollution. For purposes of this subdivision, "remote storage site for sugar beets" means an
area where sugar beets are temporarily stored before delivery to a sugar beet processing
facility and that is not located on land adjacent to the processing facility.
