WITHDRAWAL OF
PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF ECOLOGY


[ Filed July 2, 2007, 4:06 p.m. ]

The department of ecology will be withdrawing CR-101 WSR 06-07-152 filed March 22, 2006.

The subject of this CR-101 was the establishment of a reservation (chapter 173-502 WAC) for the beneficial use of rooftop rainwater in the San Juan County Resource Inventory Area (WRIA 2). The purpose of the rule was to provide a more efficient permit process than the existing water rights application process for rooftop rainwater catchment in WRIA 2.

The department is withdrawing this CR-101 because a more simplified and direct approach was developed. Under the new approach the department will process a regional water right permit application from San Juan County for the beneficial use of rainwater in lieu of the CR-101. Through the permit, San Juan County will be authorized to allocate rooftop rainwater for beneficial use within certain permit conditions delineated by the department.
