* Notwithstanding anything within the District Enforcement Policy and Civil Penalty Schedule that may be interpreted to the contrary, the District will not assess any civil penalty, nor otherwise take any enforcement action, for the failure to register an existing, exempt well within the District as otherwise provided for by District Rule 3.1. However, as also stated in District Rule 3.1(d), the failure of any person to timely register an existing, exempt well within the District constitutes a waiver of all protections against well interference that are established in Chapter 6 of the District Rules until such time as the well becomes registered with the District in a manner that complies with applicable rules. The failure to timely register an existing, exempt well within the District also waives eligibility for any special notice afforded to registered well owners pursuant to applicable District Rules.
