The purpose of this program is to provide for the transfer of a privilege to divert water within an area of critical water supply concern, as designated by the commissioner pursuant to section 6 of P.L.1981, c.262 (C.58:1A-6), without adversely impacting the aquifer. b. Within 60 days of the effective date of P.L.1993, c.202, the department shall adopt, pursuant to the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.), rules and regulations necessary to implement the provisions of this section. These rules and regulations shall include: (1) A procedure for the review and approval or disapproval of the transfer of water allocation credits; and (2) A provision that a well for which all privileges to divert have been transferred shall be closed and capped to prevent the pumping of water from that well in the future. c. The department shall provide for the expeditious review and approval of a plan submitted by a county which facilitates the transfer of water allocation credits. This review and approval may occur prior to the adoption of the rules and regulations required pursuant to this section. L.1993,c.202,s.5.
