OLYMPIC REGION

CLEAN AIR AGENCY

[ Filed August 19, 2008, 11:49 a.m. , effective September 19, 2008 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: The asbestos rules and associated fees have not changed since 1993. Changes in the asbestos rule will clarify several aspects of the program. The requirements will be less restrictive of residential projects. Changes in the fees will better cover the program expenses.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending Olympic Region Clean Air Agency Regulations, Rules 6.3 Asbestos and 3.5 Asbestos Fees.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Chapter 70.94 RCW.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 08-13-088 on June 17, 2008.

Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: The definition of an "asbestos project" was changed. The following sentence was added: "This term does not include the removal of less than 10 linear feet or 11 square feet of asbestos containing material." The fee category for those projects was deleted as a part of this rule revision. This change was necessary to clarify that a permit was not required for that category.
