In the termination notice, the agency shall state the reasons why the agency proposes to require repermitting of the facility and shall provide the owner or operator with 30 days to respond to the notice.

Upon receipt of this final determination, the owner or operator may elect to seek to continue the operation of the transfer facility or source-separated organic material compost facility by submitting a permit application, or may close the facility. If the owner or operator elects to continue the operation, the owner or operator shall submit a permit application within 30 days of receipt of the final determination. The commissioner shall process the application following the procedures in chapter 7001.
