Oral

0011 Concerned about the meaning of the cross references to the 1995 Regulation at the start of various sections or subsections. Explained that these where included to assist reviewers and they will be deleted in the clean text format after adoption. No changes made in the legislative text format version.
---- Judith Boekholder, Council Member, City of Toppenish 03/08/00, Oral 0024 I represent the Yakima Valley Mayor's Assoc. I concur with the City of Yakima comments, and I am pleased to see how those have been resolved. See comments 0012 through 0023. No changes made in the regulation.
3.03, 3.08, 3.01C1d, & 3.01C3 Judith Boekholder, Council Member, City of Toppenish 03/08/00, Oral 0027 I notice that there were some editorial changes in outdoor burning, dust control, and odor subsections. I hope they have been cleared with the effected organizations. We worked through all the differences with the Fire Chiefs Assoc.. We did what we could legally do to oblige the dairy industry, but we were not able to all that they requested. We have done extensive work on dust issues in the past with the CWHBA, the construction industry, and the ag industry. No changes made in the regulation.
---- Judith Boekholder, Council Member, City of Toppenish 03/08/00, Oral 0029 Concerned about the March 8, 2000 version of regulation and the limited circulation it was given. Also, which version is being adopted? Prior to the public hearing, it was explained that the March 8, 2000 version was prepared to show the Board and a few other people the nonsubstantive editorial and clarity text changes being proposed to the Board by the Authority and the public if they adopt the Jan. 5, 2000 version and approved the changes. No change made or required in the regulation by this comment.
---- Steve George, Hop Growers of WA 03/08/00, Oral 0030 The public comments and the staff responses made at the adoption hearing today need to be incorporated into the record. This is the reason that the hearing is being recorded. The tapes will be transcribed and the public comments and staff responses entered into public comment response file. No change made or required in the regulation by this comment.
Article 1
1.03A11, 1 - 1 Mary Place, Board Member 03/08/00 Oral 0010 The name Yakama Indian Nation should be Yakama Nation because this now the official name used by the Nation. Agree. Text changed to read "...Yakama Nation...".
1.03C Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00 Written 0012 Staff Responses and Changes on Oct. 27, 1999 version indicated that this text would be changed, but the change has not been made. This is true. Board agrees to the change. Text changed to read "Ensuring compliance with all air quality rules and standards, permits, and programs".
1.06D1b Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00 Written 0013 Objected strongly to text. He believes the source should have the sole right to determine confidentiality of records. Staff explained that EPA insists that the Authority have the ability to make decisions about confidentiality of records. Board, staff, and city agreed to change the text to read "Subject to review by the authority; then".
Article 2
2.01C Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00 Written 0014 Objected to the Authority having the right to enter private property to conduct studies. RCW 70.94.200 authorizes entry for investigations, but doesn't speak to studies. Board agreed to drop the word "studies" in the text. Changed to read "The APCO may make reasonable investigations or inspections".
2.01C1 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00 Written 0014 Objected to the Authority having the right to enter private property to conduct studies. RCW 70.94.200 authorizes entry for investigations, but doesn't speak to studies. Board agreed to drop the word "studies" in the text. Changed to read "To investigate or inspect conditions for ...".".
2.01C2 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00 Written 0014 Objected to the Authority having the right to enter private property to conduct studies. RCW 70.94.200 authorizes entry for investigations, but doesn't speak to studies. Board agreed to drop the word "studies" in the text. Changed to read "These investigations or inspections hall be limited ...".
2.01C2d&e Douglas W. Rich, Chair, Bus. WG 02/17/00, Letter 0001 "In the matter of Section 2.01C2d&e -Investigations of Permitted Sources:, we have earlier commented that we saw the language as proper for regular industrial and commercial sources, but potentially invasive for individual citizens at their residences." RCW 70.94.200 denies the right of the APCO to enter nonmultiple unit private dwellings housing two families or less. In all other situations this part of WCAA permits the APCO to enter property or buildings to conduct an investigation under WCAA . Both DOE and EPA view, an entry requirement for private property which might be different from industrial / commercial property as a reduction in the WCAA requirements, and they will not support it. None change required or made.
2.01C2d&e Douglas W. Rich, Chair, Bus. WG 02/17/00, Letter 0002 The Authority has stated it is policy to obtain an inspection warrant if entry is refused by the occupant of the property, and coercive tactics would not be used to gain entry. The Compliance and Enforcement Program Inspection Manual states that an inspector will use legal remedies to gain access if entry is denied to a property. This has been discussed , and agreed that the proper place for this is in a policy manual and not the regulation. No change made in the regulation.
2.05C Judith Boekholder, Council Member, City of Toppenish 03/08/00, Oral 0025 Would like more information in this subsection to explain how an appeal can be filed. The appeal process is very complex with appeals being heard by the APCO, Board, or the Pollution Control Hearings Board. In addition there are different appeal procedures for different types of permits or violations. The Authority will be prepare a policy document explaining the appeal process. No changes made in the regulation.
Article 3
3.01B, 3 -5 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00, Written 0015 The proposed regulation reads that "when multiple standards exist all standards will apply". This would not be possible when there are conflicting emissions standards. Requested the deletion of subsection 3.01B. Past reviews and discussions with EPA about multiple emission standards have shown that they are very insistent that all standards apply, and the text can not be limited to the most stringent standard. Board approved changing the second sentence to clarify this issue: "When multiple standards exist all applicable standards will apply" by add the word "applicable".
3.01C1d, 3 - 6 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00, Written 0016 The terms "odor" and "reasonable minimum" are nebulous and without standard. Significant time and funds will be spent attempting to define an odor or "reasonable minimum" in a given case. Subsection 3.01C1d should be deleted, as it is a nuisance already covered under state law in Chap. 7.48 RCW. These terms are not defined in either Chap. 70.94 RCW or WAC 173-400-030. RCW 70.94.640 does deal with agricultural odors, and the text is repeated in subsection 3.01C3a. In both cases odors are not defined, but the law and regulation define management practices which will avoid an odor violation. The text in sub. 3.01C1d is very similar to WAC 173-400-040 (4), and it is needed to inform the public about the legal obligation for odors and to deal with nuisance complaints about odors. The evaluation of odors is very subjective, but there is no other alternative at present. Board decided to make no change in this subsection.
3.03D1b, 3 - 23 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00, Written 0017 This subsection contains language prohibiting the burning of "hauled materials" transported from an area prohibited for outdoor burning. This is ambiguous as to the purpose and it should be deleted. This subsection is included to prevent the transport of some types of outdoor burning material from an area where it is prohibited and burning in another area where it is not prohibited, and transferring the pollution from one area to another.

It is very similar to the text in WAC173-425-040 (2).

Board decided to leave the text as is.
3.03D1b, 3 - 23 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00, Written 0017 This subsection contains language prohibiting the burning of "hauled materials" transported from an area prohibited for outdoor burning. This is ambiguous as to the purpose and it should be deleted. This subsection is included to prevent the transport of some types of outdoor burning material from an area where it is prohibited and burning in another area where it is not prohibited, and transferring the pollution from one area to another.

It is very similar to the text in WAC173-425-040 (2).

Board decided to leave the text as is.
3.03J4a63 - 27 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00, Written 0018 This subsection refers to the permittee agreeing to allow the APCO to enter his / her property to conduct an investigation. This language needs to be clarified to state that all such investigations shall be in accordance with all applicable laws with respect to private property. The subsection states "... as defined in subsection 2.01C" which defines the requirements for entry to private property for any inspection or investigation conducted by the Authority. Therefore, additional text is not needed. Board agreed to no change in the text.
3.03H, 3-26 Paul Carr, DOE 02/18/00, E-mail 0003 Suggest the term "waiver" be changed to "specific exemption" to clarify the intent of use. DOE is still concerned about the potential for abuse / overuse of this subsection. The variance procedure in state law is a better approach for inclusion in the SIP. We agree to the change in terms from "waiver" to "specific exemption". We do not agree that the variance process in subsection 3.00D and WCAA is effective for dealing with the varying conditions and short duration of impacts resulting from changed conditions during the administration of this section. This is what this subsection is intended to address. We concede that this subsection may need to be changed at the time of SIP adoption, but we believe that it is important to have in the local regulations. Changed subsection 3.03H to read:

SPECIFIC EXEMPTIONS. The APCO (App. B) may grant a written specific exemption for a subsection if the specific exemption will:

1. Create no more air pollution than the requirements of the subsection; and

2. Create no adverse environmental, health, or public safety effects:.

3. The document granting the specific exemption must contain:

a. The conditions of the specific exemption

b. A duration of no more than 30 consecutive days; and

c. The signature of the owner or operator of the property indicating agreement to the conditions of the specific exemption.

4. Specific exemptions will not be extended.

3.03J1, 3-27 Paul, Carr, DOE 02/18/00, E-mail 0004 Add the text in subsection 3.03J1c to 3.03J1 to amplify the requirements for an individual permit. This is not needed. The conditions to quality for individual permitting are all listed in 3.03J1a->e, and changing the location of the text will accomplish nothing. None.
3.03J2, 3-27 Paul, Carr, DOE 02/18/00 and 02/25/00, E-Mail 0005 Impose a seasonal limitation on annual residential and agricultural burning permits by inserting the following text "...the authority believes that burning can be conducted on a limited basis during those times and seasons of the year when there is minimum impact on air quality, and";... We do not agree that imposing a seasonal limitation during March thru Oct. will reduce outdoor and agricultural burning emissions. In fact it could tend to create problems if all the burning occurs at specific times with unfavorable atmospheric conditions for ventilation. Therefore, we prefer to allow a maximum window for burning with the only limitations being those in the regulation and the state fire code. We have considered some form of limitation on types of outdoor and agricultural burning between Nov. and Feb., but that will not be considered for rule making until the PM10 maintenance plan is drafted. None. We believed the proposed changes would be substantive and could not be adopted without refiling the regulation because they impose additional conditions on the regulated public.
3.03, tables 1, 2, & 3, 3 - 29 -> 34 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00, Written 0023 Requests exemptions for flag disposal burning similar to home barbecues with the ability to dispose of unserviceable flags at night, at locations inside the urban growth areas, using a small amount of kerosene for ignition of the fire, without a permit, and without notification to the Authority or neighbors. Home barbecues are a form of recreational burning, and flag disposal ceremonial fires are included in the WAC and regulation definitions of recreational fires. Previous editions of the regulation included flag disposal burning as a form of recreational burning. This received strong objections from the American Legion, and all references to flag disposal burning were removed in this version of the regulation. The WAC and regulation definitions of ceremonial fires includes only Native American ceremonial fires. EPA is very insistent that no changes be made in the definitions of terms from those in the CFR, RCW, or WAC. So by default flag disposal burning becomes a type of "other recreational burning ", and is subject to the requirements of Lines 5 & 5.2 in tables 3.03 1 -> 3. Continued to the next page. Board decided that the pollution and nuisances from this type of burning is very minor, and no changes should be made in the regulation text specifically for flag disposal burning. Flag disposal by burning will be handled as a policy matter.
3.03, tables 1, 2, & 3, 3 - 29 -> 34 Clarence Barnett, City of Yakima 03/08/00, written 0023 Cont. Requests exemptions for flag disposal burning similar to home barbecues with the ability to dispose of unserviceable flags at night, at locations inside the urban growth areas, using a small amount of kerosene for ignition of the fire, without a permit, and without notification to the Authority or neighbors. Cont'd. In tables 3.03 - 1 -> 3 other recreational fires are prohibited inside the urban growth areas, are permitted after sunset, may not burn prohibited materials, do not require a permit, and have no notification requirements.

Past statements by the Authority in the Jan. 5, '00 Staff Response and Changes on the Oct. 27th Version and at the local adoption hearing that flag disposal burning would be a type of other outdoor burning were incorrect. This is because ceremonial fires are included in the definition of recreational burning.

Board decided that the pollution and nuisances from this type of burning is very minor, and no changes should be made in the regulation text specifically for flag disposal burning. Flag disposal by burning will be handled as a policy matter.

In a previous version of the draft regulation, the Authority made the decision to remove the fines and penalty worksheets and schedules and keep them in a policy document. A general explanation was made of the fines and penalties policy process. No change made in the regulation.
