Chapter 173-455 WAC, Chapter 173-400 WAC

This rulemaking will amend two rules:

The amendments will:
  • Revise the registration program structure, including requiring all sources to register.
  • Increase fees to more fully cover the costs of the air quality source registration program.
  • Revise the fee process to create an equitable distribution of fees across all sources and establish a process to increase fees without going through rulemaking.
  • Align Chapters 173-400 and 173-455 WAC.
  • Match hourly rate charge in WAC 173-455-050, -100(4) and -130 with the current Ecology hourly billing rate ($95).
  • Identify and, where appropriate, edit Chapters 173-455 and 173-400 WAC to increase clarity and readability.
