[ Order 07-17 -- Filed July 27, 2012, 9:32 a.m. ]

Continuance of WSR 12-11-020.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 07-22-116.

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Chapter 173-518 WAC, Water resources management program for the Dungeness portion of the Elwha-Dungeness water resource inventory area (WRIA 18).

Hearing Location(s): The original proposed rule-making notice (CR-102) stated that the hearing for the proposed rule would take place on June 28, 2012, at Guy Cole Center, Carrie Blake Park, 202 North Blake Avenue, Sequim, WA, at 5:00 p.m. - open house and 6:00 p.m. - presentation with question and answer followed by public hearing.

The hearing was commenced on that date and at that location, but the hearing was continued and changed to a new location. The new location was Sequim Community Church, 950 North Fifth Avenue, Sequim, WA 98382. The time was also extended to 3:30 p.m. - open house and 6:00 p.m. - presentation with question and answer followed by public hearing.

Date of Intended Adoption: August 31, 2012.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The purpose of this notice is to record the change in location and time associated with the public hearing that ecology held on June 28, 2012. Ecology convened the hearing in the original location, Guy Cole Center, Carrie Blake Park, 202 North Blake Avenue, Sequim, WA, and announced on the record that the hearing was being continued so that it could take place at the new location at a later time that day. Subsequently, the hearing was reconvened at the new location.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: Ecology changed the location to accommodate a larger number of people. The hours for the open house were extended to allow property owners to get site-specific information on how the proposed water management rule may affect their water use.
