502 Delaware Standardbred Breeders’ Fund Regulations
The State of Delaware, Department of Agriculture’s Standardbred Breeders’ Fund (“the Fund”) hereby gives notice of its intention to adopt an amended regulation pursuant to the General Assembly’s delegation of authority to do so found at 29 Del.C. §4815(b)(4)b.2. and in compliance with Delaware’s Administrative Procedures Act at 29 Del.C. §10115. The proposed amended regulation under 13.7 addresses the national horse shortage and is consistent with the DHRC regulation concerning qualifying requirements.
The Fund solicits, and will consider, timely filed written comments from interested individuals and groups concerning these proposed amended regulations. The deadline for the filing of such written comments will be thirty days (30) after these proposed amended regulations are promulgated in the Delaware Register of Regulations. Any such submissions should be mailed or hand-delivered to Ms. Judy Davis-Wilson, Administrator, Delaware Standardbred Breeders’ Fund Program whose address is State of Delaware, Department of Agriculture, 2320 South duPont Highway, Dover, Delaware 19901 by June 1, 2017.
The purpose of the proposed revisions is to bring the regulations into compliance with current federal requirements, as determined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA issued the Revisions to the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Regulations for Class V Injection Wells, effective April 2000 and December 2011. With this, the State of Delaware Regulations Governing Underground Injection Control is to be amended. The revised State regulations will also expand the existing regulations to include additional requirements for multiple water management activities.
The hearing record on the proposed changes to State of Delaware Regulations Governing Underground Injection Control will be open May 1, 2017. Individuals may submit written comments regarding the proposed changes via e-mail to Lisa.Vest@state.de.us or via the USPS to Lisa Vest, Hearing Officer, DNREC, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901 (302) 739-9042. A public hearing on the proposed amendment will be held on May 25, 2017 beginning at 6:00 PM in the DNREC Auditorium, located at the Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
The DNREC-Watershed Assessment and Management Branch has revised the proposed amendments to Delaware Administrative Code 7401: Surface Water Quality Standards following a thorough review.

These revisions to the proposed amendments address sections that linked to incorrect sections in the regulation and Department. The revisions also include amendments by DNREC resulting from written comments during the initial public comment period which ended February 23, 2017.
