17.24.718    SOIL AMENDMENTS, MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES, AND LAND USE PRACTICES

(1) Soil amendments must be used as necessary to supplement the soil and to aid in the establishment of a permanent vegetative cover as specified in the approved reclamation plan or as later deemed necessary by the department.

(2) An operator may use husbandry practices, approved by the department, for management of vegetation consistent with the approved reclamation plan without affecting the minimum responsibility period. If husbandry practices other than those specified for the approved land use are employed, the minimum responsibility period will start after the last such unapproved practice is used.

(3) Reclamation land use practices including, but not limited to, grazing, haying, or chemical applications, may not be conducted in a manner or at a time that interferes with establishment and/or persistence of seeded and planted grasses, forbs, shrubs, and trees or with other reclamation requirements.
