NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Subsection 73-2-1(4)(b): The state engineer shall make rules, in accordance with Title 63G, Chapter 3, Utah Administrative Rulemaking Act, consistent with the purposes and provisions of this title, regarding: the construction of water wells and licensing of water well drillers. Subsection 73-3-25(3): The state engineer may make rules establishing: the amount, form, and general administrative requirements of a water well driller bond, the amount of a well driller fine, minimum well drilling standards, well driller reporting requirements, the requirements for obtaining a well driller license, a procedure to enforce well drilling standards, or other well drilling requirement.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
There have been no written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule either in support of or in opposition to the rule.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The rule should continue because there is an ongoing need to regulate the construction of wells that take water from or interact with the groundwater aquifers of the state to ensure adequate protection of those aquifers. There is also an ongoing need to license water well drillers to ensure they are qualified to construct water wells for the protection of well owners and the state's groundwater aquifers.
