|(a) This section applies only to Underground Injection Control permits. (b) With the permittee's consent, the executive director may modify administratively a permit to make the corrections or allowances for changes in the permitted activity listed in this section, without following the procedures and notice requirements of this chapter. Any change to the permit not processed as a minor modification under this section must be made for cause and in compliance with appropriate public notice requirements. Minor modifications may only: (1) correct typographical errors; (2) require more frequent monitoring or reporting by the permittee; (3) change an interim compliance date in a schedule of compliance, provided the new date is not more than 120 days after the date specified in the existing permit and does not interfere with attainment of the final compliance date requirement; (4) change quantities or types of fluids injected which are within the capacity of the facility as permitted and in the judgment of the executive director, would not interfere with the operation of the facility or its ability to meet conditions described in the permit and would not change its classification, provided however, that this provision shall not be used to add a waste stream other than nonhazardous brine produced by a desalination operation or nonhazardous drinking water treatment residuals to the permit of a Class I injection well issued without the opportunity for a contested case hearing; (5) change construction requirements, provided that the alterations comply with the requirements of Chapter 331 of this title (relating to Underground Injection Control); or (6) amend a plugging and abandonment plan which has been updated under §305.154(7) of this title (relating to Standards).
