Is there a special exception process?
When a special exception is requested, this must be completed by the Water System submitting the plan for whatever the proposed exception is to the plan. This must include why the minimum requirements of NAC 445A cannot be maintained, provide an analysis of any potential public health impacts, how this exception can be protective of public health, and any other pertinent information necessary to complete the review process.
Special exceptions are considered only on a case-by-case basis.
All special exceptions must be completed and submitted in writing to Washoe County Health District (WCHD). WCHD will coordinate with NDEP for concurrent review and comment as part of the review process.
