PROPOSED RULES

DEPARTMENT OF ECOLOGY

[Order 97-40--Filed November 14, 1997, 10:43 a.m.]

Original Notice.

Exempt from preproposal statement of inquiry under RCW 34.05.310(4).

Title of Rule: Shoreline Management Act, lakes constituting shorelines of the state.

Purpose: To add Thomas Lake, in Snohomish County, to the list of lakes in WAC 173-20-640.

Other Identifying Information: Location of Thomas Lake is T28N, R5E, sections 32 and 33.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 90.58.200.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 90.58.030 (2)(d).

Summary: The proposed amendment to WAC 173-20-640 would add Thomas Lake to the existing list of lakes coming under the purview of the Shoreline Management Act, chapter 90.58 RCW.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: Thomas Lake has been determined to have more than twenty acres of surface area. Ecology is required to periodically review and update the lakes list.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Tom Mark, 300 Desmond Drive, Lacey, (360) 407-7285; Implementation and Enforcement: Ray Hellwig, 3190 160th S.E., Bellevue, (425) 649-7096.

Name of Proponent: Washington State Department of Ecology, governmental.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: The proposed rule amendment will add Thomas Lake to the list of lakes designated as "shorelines of the state" pursuant to the Shoreline Management Act, chapter 90.58 RCW. The effect of this will make certain developments and uses in and around Thomas Lake subject to chapter 90.58 RCW and Snohomish County's shoreline regulations. These shoreline regulations are similar, and in addition to, zoning regulations. Some developments and activities in and around Thomas Lake could be required to apply for [a] shoreline permit from Snohomish County.

Proposal Changes the Following Existing Rules: Proposed change would add one line of text to WAC 173-20-640: T28N-R5E 32/33 Thomas Lake 80+. This is the location by township, range, and sections, and the lake name and approximate surface area.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The proposed WAC amendment is required by RCW 90.58.030 and 90.58.200, and it would impact only one business entity at this time. Further, that business does not fall under the definition of a "small business" as provided in RCW 19.85.020(1) by virtue of having more than fifty employees.

Section 201, chapter 403, Laws of 1995, does not apply to this rule adoption. These lake listings are dictated by statute (chapter 90.58 RCW), as defined in RCW 34.05.328.

Hearing Location: City of Mill Creek Council Chambers, 15728 Mill Creek Boulevard, Mill Creek, WA 98012, on January 7, 1998, at 7:30 p.m.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Felecia Curtis by December 31, 1997, TDD (360) 407-6206, or (360) 407-6199.

Submit Written Comments to: Don Bales, Department of Ecology, S.E.A. Program, P.O. Box 47600, Olympia, WA 98504-7600, FAX (360) 407-6528, by January 16, 1998.

Date of Intended Adoption: February 27, 1998.
