Agendas and meeting notes from the advisory committee on section 900 for the WAC 173-350 rulemaking.
WAC 173-350-900 - Remedial action
Ecology staff lead: Bill Harris
Focus: Section 900 establishes roles for the jurisdictional health department and Ecology at solid waste facilities subject to remedial actions under WAC 173-340 Model Toxics Control Act. The rule language is unclear on the scope of Ecology authority over facility operations and solid waste handling activities when a facility is in remedial action under MTCA. It can be read as meaning that the JHD's primary role for solid waste permitting and enforcement is deferred to Ecology until remedial action is complete.
A formal work group is not being proposed for this section. Rule language will be reviewed and possibly clarified. Changes may be proposed based on agency assessment, and in response to stakeholder comments received during informal and formal comment periods. Please send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
