R 336.201 Definitions.
Rule 1. As used in these rules:
(a) "Commercial location" means a publicly or privately owned place where
persons are engaged in the exchange or sale of goods or services. "Commercial
location" also means multiple housing units which have a single owner and which are
designed for 3 or more families. "Commercial location" does not include elementary
and secondary schools and facilities owned and operated by the state government. A
separate building or group of buildings used for the exchange or sale of goods or
services which has a single owner and manager constitutes a separate commercial
(b) "Department" means the department of natural resources.
(c) "Geographical site" means contiguous land ownership by 1 landowner. A public
right-of-way, such as a road, railroad, and watercourse through part of the site, is not
considered to break the continuity. If transmission and fuel delivery rights-of-way or
a strip of land that serves no other principal purpose than as a transportation or
materials handling link connects 2 or more otherwise separate geographical sites, such
connected sites shall be considered separate geographical sites.
(d) "Manufacturing location" means a place where a person is engaged in the
making of goods or wares, including the generation of electricity, in the processing of
material, or primarily in the disposing or treating of solid or liquid waste. For the
purpose of assessing a surveillance fee, manufacturing location includes all such
places, whether publicly or privately owned and contained within 1 geographical site,
except for places owned and operated by the state government. A power plant, as
defined in table 42 of R 336.1401 of the Michigan Administrative Code, constitutes a
separate manufacturing location when used to supply steam or energy to more than 1
other manufacturing or commercial location. However, a power plant with a capacity of
more than 500,000 pounds of steam per hour is considered a separate manufacturing
location. For a large industrial complex or other unusual cases, the department may
determine that the complex constitutes more than 1 manufacturing location, based on
such factors as separate corporate operating division units or sections.
