Notice of Rule Proposal
Water Supply Loan Programs, N.J.A.C 7:1A

Public Notice
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing the readoption of the rules without change for the Water Supply Loan Programs rules. The existing rules govern loans to public owned community water supply systems for the rehabilitation or repair of antiquated, obsolete, damaged or inadequately operating water facilities; for the interconnection of unconnected or inadequately connected water systems; for the rehabilitation, repair, or construction of new drinking water treatment facilities; for the construction of water supply facilities or public water systems to address groundwater contamination problems.  In the instance of contaminated wellfields, privately owned community water supply systems are eligible to apply for a replacement loan.

The immediate task is to readopt the current rules without change to allow the Department to continue to process current water supply loan applications, in anticipation of the rule sunset date which is on May 10, 2007.  No new applications have been accepted under the Water Supply Loan Programs since 1997.  The Department previously committed to the existing project sponsors to process and to complete all remaining applications for projects that were received on or prior to June 30, 1997.

It is anticipated that the unit within the Department responsible for this program will close-out the Water Supply Loan Programs about December 2007.  The rules need to remain in effect until all the loans are repaid to the State, since the loan agreement documents specifically reference the rules.

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated June 18, 2007. A copy of the proposal is available from the DEP web site or by contacting the rule manager, Roger Tsao, Bureau of Loans and Data Management at (609) 292-5550.
