On page 1, beginning on line 13, after "county." strike the remainder of the section and insert "Nothing in this section eliminates the requirement that counties protect water quality and surface and groundwater resources consistent with RCW 36.70A.070(1) and (5), including through appropriate regulation adopted pursuant to RCW 43.20.050, chapter 70.05 RCW, or chapter 70.118 RCW that ensures the detection of poorly functioning on-site sewage systems."
On page 2, beginning on line 18, strike all of sections 2 and 3
Correct the title.
EFFECT: Eliminates conditions restricting counties' authority to authorize on-site sewage system (OSS) self-inspections in instances where a water quality problem has been linked to poorly functioning on-site sewage systems. Specifies that the authority for certain counties to authorize OSS self-inspections does not eliminate requirements that counties protect water quality and water resources under the land use and rural elements of the Growth Management Act, including through appropriate regulations adopted by the State Board of Health or local Boards of Health to ensure detection of poorly functioning OSS.
