Section 13 – Structures or areas which are the subject of regulations under section 2(3)

This section deals with the registration timeframe for a structure or area which is to be treated as a controlled reservoir due to regulations under section 2(3). The reservoir manager must register the reservoir not later than 28 days after the date of notice (under section 2(4)) by the Department of the making of the regulations. Subsection (2) again enables the Department by notice to extend the period of 28 days to such time as it considers appropriate.
