A comment period was held from March 7 to April 30, 2019.
We held a hearing in person and via webinar on April 23, 2019 at 10 a.m. We had a presentation of proposed changes to the permit fees, answered any questions, then held a formal hearing to recieve oral comments.
Fee discount during innovation process testing
Ecology is implementing reducing fees for permittees who want to research and test new manufacturing technologies and processes that reduce wastewater pollutants. We’ve adopted a three-year, 75 percent discount in associated water quality permit fees when innovative projects result in less permit oversight and pollution. See our focus sheet for more information
