Fees for an enlargement to an 11 existing dam or mine tailings impoundment structure shall be based upon the 12 increase in storage capacity or tailings storage capacity. Fees for altera- 13 tions or repairs of an existing dam or mine tailings impoundment structure 14 shall be based on an estimate, made by the director, of costs of inspections 15 to be made, however, in no case shall such fees exceed that which would be 16 required by the fee schedule for construction of the dam or mine tailings 17 impoundment structure. 18 The fee for construction of a dam or mine tailings impoundment structure, 19 or for enlarging an existing dam or mine tailings impoundment structure, shall 20 be two hundred dollars ($200) plus the following amount: 21 (a) For one thousand (1,000) acre-feet capacity or less, ten dollars 22 ($10.00) for each ten (10) acre-feet or part thereof. 23 (b) For over one thousand (1,000) acre-feet capacity but not exceeding 24 ten thousand (10,000) acre-feet capacity, one thousand dollars ($1,000) plus 25 one dollar ($1.00) for each ten (10) acre-feet or part thereof over the first 26 one thousand (1,000) acre-feet capacity. 27 (c) For storage in excess of ten thousand (10,000) acre-feet, one thou- 28 sand nine hundred dollars ($1,900) plus twenty cents (20¢) for each ten (10) 29 acre-feet or part thereof over the first ten thousand (10,000) acre-feet 30 capacity.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 13461 The purpose of this legislation is to amend Section 42-1713, Idaho Code, to provide for a minimum fee in addition to the amount currently set forth in the fee schedule that is based on reservoir storage capacity. Section 42-1713 provides for collecting fees to perform design review for the construction of new dams or alterations to existing dams. Most of the applications received are for dams of relatively small storage capacity, and since the current fee schedule is based only on reservoir capacity, the fees currently received are very small. Design review for these dams, however, can require many man-hours of time, which is not reflected in the collected fees. This legislation will add a minimum amount of $200.00 that will be additive to the application fee currently based on storage capacity of the reservoir. FISCAL IMPACT Enactment of this legislation will not directly affect the state's general fund or other state or local funds, but would result in increased fee revenues to the Department that would be available to carry out the provisions of the Dam Safety Act.
