Purpose: Amend existing Regulation I and repeal the existing Regulation II. Delete sections that no longer apply. Delete sections that are duplicative within the Regulation or within state regulations. Incorporate EPA required changes to Articles I, II, IV, and V of Regulation I. Centralize, revise and add to definitions in Article I. Correct spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and references to other sections. Add new fees (Article X). Revise paragraph formats for consistency. Post CR-102 nonsubstantive revisions: Article II, Section 2.13E - The effective date for references to federal laws and regulations has been changed to adoption date of the regulations revisions at the recommendation of EPA. Each article's revised date has been changed to reflect the adoption date of March 4, 2004.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing SCAPCA Regulation II; and amending SCAPCA Regulation I.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Chapter 70.94 RCW.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 04-01-160 on December 22, 2003.

Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: Post CR-102 nonsubstantive revisions: Article II, Section 2.13E - The effective date for references to federal laws and regulations has been changed to adoption date of the regulation revisions at the recommendation of EPA. In addition, SCAPCA inadvertently included outdated versions of Sections 10.06.B.3 and 10.09.D of Article X, in its CR-102 (WSR 04-01-160) and original CR-103 (WSR 04-07-748 [04-07-048]) submissions as if these were nonamended sections. In accordance with RCW 34.05.395, the inadvertent amendments to these sections are invalidated because they did not follow the formatting required for amendments and therefore the previously adopted versions stand.
