Purpose: Amends freshwater recreational rules for Lake Sylvia.
Citation of Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-312-02000R; and amending WAC 220-312-020.
Under RCW 34.05.350
the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.
Reasons for this Finding: This rule change is necessary to ensure a safe and successful kids fish-in event. The fish will be planted the evening prior to the event to better acclimate them to the lake. There is insufficient time to adopt permanent rules.
