DNR aquatic plant management permits. Provides a variety of new procedures relating to the administration of the permit process for water resource related construction activities obtained from the department of natural resources (DNR) and the department of environmental management (IDEM). Requires the joint participation of DNR and IDEM in certain processes and allows cooperation with certain federal government agencies. Provides that the commissioner of IDEM or the commissioner's designated representative may enjoin work on a construction project for violation of rules concerning storm water runoff. Requires the commissioner of IDEM to encourage counties to adopt and enforce erosion and sediment control ordinances, to allocate resources of the department to give priority to implementation and enforcement of the rule concerning storm water runoff in construction activity, and to establish an education program concerning this rule. Provides that the DNR must issue a permit before a person may control aquatic vegetation in the public waters or boundary waters of the state by chemical, mechanical, or physical means. (Current law requires a permit only for chemical treatment.)
