(j) 1., if the person proposes in the application to increase the amount of the withdrawal so that it equals at least 10,000,000 gallons per day for any 30 consecutive days over the withdrawal amount as of the beginning of the current permit term, the compact's effective date, or the date that the department issued a modified permit for the withdrawal if the modification was subject to the compact decision-making standard under sub. (6), whichever is latest later, unless the withdrawal meets the compact decision-making standard under sub. (6).
3. A person who submits an application under par. (j) 1., to which subd. 2. would otherwise apply, may choose to demonstrate, using procedures specified in rules promulgated by the department, the water loss that will result from the increase in the withdrawal over the withdrawal amount as of the latest later of the dates under subd. 2. If the person demonstrates that the resulting increase in water loss would average less than 5,000,000 gallons per day in every 90-day period, the state decision-making standard under sub. (5m), rather than the compact decision-making standard under sub. (6), applies to the increase in the withdrawal.

281.346 (5) (p) Suspension and revocation. The department may suspend or revoke a permit issued under this subsection or s. 281.344 (5) for cause, including obtaining the permit by misrepresentation or failure to disclose material facts or substantially violating the terms of the permit.
