Focus: This section concerns the land application of wastes for beneficial purposes. A work group has been formed and will begin meeting in early 2015. Some issues the work group will look at include the number of parameters tested to characterize a waste stream, the relationship to the beneficial use determination process in Section 200, and whether some wastes should be excluded from regulation when returned to the soils at agronomic rates. There may be a need to coordinate revision of this section with other sections, including the new soils and sediment criteria and use section (to be proposed as WAC 173-350-235). 

Update: The workgroup responsible for rewriting the land application section has completed its work and Ecology is in the process of reviewing draft language. Please send questions to w2rrulemaking@ecy.wa.gov
