The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: Chapter 173-223 WAC, Interim wastewater discharge permit fee.
Rules Proposed for Expedited Repeal Meet the Following Criteria: Other rules of the agency or of another agency govern the same activity as the rule, making the rule redundant.
Any person who objects to the repeal of the rule must file a written objection to the repeal within thirty days after publication of this preproposal statement of inquiry.
Address Your Objection to: Department of Ecology, Attn: Bev Poston, Water Quality Program, P.O. Box 47600, Olympia, WA 98504-7600.
Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: This regulation has not been used by ecology since fiscal year 1989. It has since been replaced by a newer fee regulation. Having it on the books can cause confusion to wastewater and/or stormwater permittees who pay annual permit fees.
