Deviation from 40 CFR Part 35.3520(e)(2) for the Well Relocation Project for Oshkosh, Nebraska and the North Douglas Regional Intertie Project for Carson City, Nevada (PDF)(3 pp, 51 K,
February 12, 2018)
This memo responds to two requests for a deviation from 40 CFR Part 35.3520(e)(2), which prohibits DWSRF financing of water rights. The deviation will allow the state of Nebraska to use DWSRF funds for a water transfer permit fee from the North Platte Natural Resource District, which would then allow the City of Oshkosh to withdraw water from new wells in the Blue Creek drainage basin. It will also allow the state of Nevada to refinance Carson City’s existing Build America Bond (BAB).
