     AN ACT Relating to removal of sand and gravel; amending RCW 79.90.150; and repealing RCW 79.90.140.




     Sec. 1.  RCW 79.90.150 and 1982 1st ex.s. c 21 s 21 are each amended to read as follows:

     When gravel, rock, sand, silt or other material from any aquatic lands is removed by any public agency or under public contract for channel or harbor improvement, or flood control, use of such material may be authorized by the department of natural resources for a public purpose on land owned or leased by the state or any municipality, county, or public corporation:  PROVIDED, That when no public land site is available for deposit of such material, its deposit on private land with the landowner's permission is authorized and may be designated by the department of natural resources to be for a public purpose.  Prior to removal and use, the state agency, municipality, county, or public corporation contemplating or arranging such use shall first obtain written permission from the department of natural resources.  No payment of royalty shall be required for such gravel, rock, sand, silt, or other material used for such public purpose, but a charge will be made if such material is subsequently sold or used for some other purpose:  PROVIDED, That the department may authorize such public agency or private landowner to dispose of such material without charge when necessary to implement disposal of material.  No charge shall be required for any use of the material obtained under the provisions of this chapter when used solely on an authorized site.  No charge shall be required for any use of the material obtained under the provisions of this chapter if the material is used for public purposes by local governments.  Public purposes include, but are not limited to, construction and maintenance of roads, dikes, and levies.  Nothing in this section shall repeal or modify the provisions of RCW 75.20.100 or eliminate the necessity of obtaining a permit for such removal from other state or federal agencies as otherwise required by law.


     NEW SECTION.  Sec. 2.      RCW 79.90.140 and 1982 1st ex.s. c 21 s 20 are each repealed.
