§ 192. Fees for Preparation of Negative Declaration or EIR.
(a) The board may charge and collect a reasonable fee from an applicant proposing a project for which the board must prepare an environmental impact report (EIR) or initial study and negative declaration. The fee will be an amount which will cover the costs incurred by the board or the department in preparing such EIR or initial study or negative declaration, and for procedures necessary to comply with CEQA.
(b) Where the board will charge a fee for the preparation of an EIR or initial study and negative declaration, it shall collect a deposit as provided in Section 503 of this title which is incorporated by reference.
(c) The board shall separately account for the deposit collected and the charges thereto. The status of the account shall be provided to the project proponent at regular periodic intervals established by mutual agreement. A final accounting shall be rendered by the board after the final EIR or negative declaration is considered and adopted or when the environmental review is otherwise terminated.
(d) If the final accounting shows that the deposit exceeds the actual costs incurred by the board, the excess shall be refunded. If the actual costs exceed the amount of the deposit, the project proponent shall be billed and pay the difference.
(e) The board may adjust or waive deposits or fees for minor projects.
