In-person and Webinar Hearing

AO18-01 Chapter 173-224 WAC

April 23, 2019 10:00 AM

This is both an in-person meeting as well as a webinar. We will explain the proposed changes to the permit fees and answer any questions. We will begin the hearing after the question and answer session. During the hearing, the public may give testimony on the proposed changes to the rule. Written comments will receive the same consideration as verbal testimony.

This rulemaking would amend Chapter 173-224 WAC – Water Quality Permit Fees. The purpose of this rule proposal to increase fees (for inflation) for Fiscal Years 2020 and 2021 and make changes to the structure of specific permit fee categories including the Winery General Permit.

We write rules to implement and enforce state and federal environmental laws and rules. We follow a 3-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
