The Franklin County Water District hereby publishes amendments to the Rules and Regulations as set out herein.
The Board of Directors of the Franklin County Water District passed this amendment on June 19, 2012. This notice is to advise the public that breach of these rules and regulations will subject the violator to a penalty.
14.16 PIERS AND BOATHOUSES
(i) A permit shall be required whenever painting, staining or other similar procedures are to be performed on any pier or boathouse extending out over the Lake. If the painting or staining is being done as part of a construction or renovation project requiring a permit under Section 14.1 above, the Lessee shall inform the District and the District shall waive any additional permit fee for the painting or staining permit. For all painting, staining and other similar procedures performed on piers and boathouses, the following conditions shall apply:
(i) If the paint, stain, or other substance to be applied to the pier or boathouse is non-petroleum based, no special draping or wrapping of the work area shall be required; provided, however that the Lessee and/or its contractor shall make the product available to the District for inspection prior to beginning any work.
(ii) If the paint, stain, or other substance is petroleum based but is to be applied to the pier or boathouse with conventional brushes or rollers only (i.e., no spraying), no special draping or wrapping of the work area shall be required; provided, however, that the Lessee and/or its contractor shall make the work area and all equipment and the petroleum based product available to the District for inspection prior to beginning any work.
(iii) If the paint, stain, or other substance is petroleum based and is to be applied by spraying (whether all or in part), the Lessee shall (x) cause the work area to be draped or wrapped with protective sheeting so as to minimize the dispersion of any petroleum based product into the Lake or the surrounding environment, and (y) notify the District when draping is complete so that the work area, including all equipment and the petroleum based product, can be inspected prior to beginning any work.
(iv) Upon completion of any painting or staining process (whether or not draping and wrapping is required), the Lessee shall immediately notify the District and make the work area available for a final inspection.
17.7 In conjunction with the performance of any construction or other activity requiring a permit under these Rules, the use of equipment requiring gasoline, oil or any other petroleum product for its operation is strictly prohibited anywhere within fifty feet (50í) of the Lake unless the work area is contained on the water side with properly secured, skirted containment booms. Additionally, containment booms shall be required whenever any such equipment is in use directly over the Lake, whether or not the activity requires a permit hereunder. Whenever containment booms are required under this Rule, the containment booms shall be placed at least fifty feet (50í) from all such equipment or any portion thereof. While such equipment is not in use but is parked on District Property, the containment booms shall be placed at least ten feet (10í) from all such equipment or any portion thereof. The foregoing rule shall not apply to small equipment for personal (i.e., non-construction, non-commercial) use including generators, air compressors, lawn mowers, skid loaders, small tractors, small trenchers and other similar yard maintenance equipment, unless such equipment is being used directly over the Lake.
