NR 407.12(4)(b)3. 3. If the department determines that the revision may not be issued as proposed but could be issued if it were amended, amend the draft permit revision, transmit the amended revision to EPA, affected states, and those listed in s. 285.62 (3) (b) 2. to 5., Stats., and process the amended proposed minor permit revision under this subsection.
NR 407.12(4)(c) (c) The permittee may make the change proposed in its request for a minor permit revision immediately after it files the request. After the permittee makes the change, and until the department takes any of the actions specified in par. (b), the permittee shall comply with both the applicable requirements governing the change and the permittee's suggested draft new permit terms and conditions.

However, if the permittee fails to comply with its suggested draft new permit terms and conditions during this time period, the existing permit terms and conditions it seeks to revise may be enforced against it. If the department determines that the proposed change may not be made pursuant to a minor permit revision, and the permittee has already made the change at the facility, the permittee shall be liable for any violations of the permit conditions it is requesting to be revised.
