A subdivision excluded under 76-4-111 or 76-4-125(2), MCA, is subject to review under 76-4-130, MCA, if the subdivision causes facilities previously approved under Title 76, chapter 4, part 1, MCA, to deviate from the conditions of approval.
(2) The reviewing authority may exclude the following parcels created by divisions of land from review under Title 76, chapter 4, part 1, MCA, unless the exclusion is used to evade the provisions of that part:
(a) a parcel that has no facilities for water supply, wastewater disposal, storm drainage, or solid waste disposal, if no facilities will be constructed on the parcel;

(ii) the division of land will not cause approved facilities to deviate from the conditions of approval, in violation of 76-4-130, MCA;
(c) a parcel that will be affected by a proposed boundary line adjustment, if the parcel has existing facilities for water supply, wastewater disposal, storm drainage, or solid waste disposal that were not subject to review, and have not been reviewed, under Title 76, chapter 4, part 1, MCA, and if:
(i) no facilities, other than those in existence prior to the boundary line adjustment, or those that were previously approved as replacements for the existing facilities, will be constructed on the parcel;
(ii) existing facilities on the parcel complied with state and local laws and regulations, including permit requirements, which were applicable at the time of installation; and
