Public Hearing

Chapter 173-180 WAC, Facility Oil Handling Standards and Chapter 173-184 WAC, Vessel Oil Transfer Advance Notice and Containment Requirements

Feb. 14, 2023, 9 a.m., Online webinar

We are holding three virtual public hearings on this rule proposal via webinar for Chapter 173-180 WAC and Chapter 173-184 WAC.

Webinars are an online meeting you can attend from any computer with internet access. The hearings will begin with a short presentation and question-and-answer session, followed by the opportunity to provide testimony.

Background:

This rulemaking will amend Chapter 173-180 WAC, Facility Oil Handling Standards and Chapter 173-184 WAC, Vessel Oil Transfer Advance Notice and Containment Requirements. Chapter 173-180 WAC establishes oil-spill prevention and oil-transfer requirements for regulated oil-handling facilities. Chapter 173-184 WAC establishes oil-transfer requirements for vessels delivering oil in bulk on or over waters of the state.

Review related documents on the page for this rulemaking.

We write rules to implement and enforce state and federal environmental laws and rules. Ecology follows a three-phase process for rulemaking:

  1. Announcement and development
  2. Proposal
  3. Adoption

For each phase of the process, we update the rulemaking web page and notify interested parties. We also file notice in the Washington State Register. To learn more about Ecology’s rulemaking process, read the Frequently Asked Questions.
