PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The department of ecology withdraws the CR-101, WSR 10-12-032 (filed May 24, 2010), amendment of chapter 173-175 WAC, Dam safety.
The agency has decided to narrow the rule amendment to raising dam safety fees as authorized in the budget bill for the 2012-2013 biennium. We may update terminology and make other housekeeping changes included in the original proposal in the future, but they will not be part of this rule making. In conjunction with filing this withdrawal, ecology has filed a CR-101 to amend chapter 173-175 WAC to raise fees for periodic inspections and engineering plan reviews by dam safety engineers to recoup actual costs, as required by RCW 90.03.470.
