(1) If, after implementation of the action plan developed by affected agencies under ORS 468B.184 to 468B.187, the ground water improves so that the levels of contaminants no longer exceed the levels established under ORS 468B.180, the Department of Environmental Quality shall determine whether to repeal the ground water management area declaration and to establish an area of ground water concern.
(2) Before the declaration of a ground water management area is repealed under subsection (1) of this section, the Department of Environmental Quality must find that, according to the best information available, a new or revised local action plan exists that will continue to improve the ground water in the area and that the Department of Environmental Quality finds can be implemented at the local level without the necessity of state enforcement authority.
(3) Before the Department of Environmental Quality terminates any mandatory controls imposed under the action plan created under ORS 468B.184 to 468B.187, the ground water management committee must produce a local action plan that includes provisions necessary to improve ground water in the area and that the department finds can be implemented at the local level without the necessity of state enforcement authority.
