Subdivision 1.Adoption.

Each organization must, within one year after the adoption of the district program under section 383A.603, develop and adopt an organization soil erosion and sediment control program as part of its watershed plan under section 103B.231. The organization program must be consistent with the district program and must be submitted to the district for approval or disapproval. Upon written request of an organization, the district shall assist in the preparation of the organization program. The organization may choose to implement the program throughout its area of jurisdiction or only within the territory of the district.

Subd. 2.Failure to adopt an organization program.

After adoption of the district program under section 383A.603, the board of water and soil resources may not approve a watershed plan until the organization has included an organization program in accordance with this section. A watershed plan approved by the board before the adoption of the district program must be amended and submitted to the board of water and soil resources for approval within one year after the adoption of the district program. If the amendment is not submitted, plan approval must be withdrawn until the amendment is submitted.

Subd. 3.Hearing requirement.

Organizations that choose to adopt conservation specifications or an ordinance that are more stringent than the district program must conduct a public hearing after due notice.
