WSR 14-11-103
[Filed May 21, 2014, 10:34 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Unstable slopes information on forest practices applications (FPA).
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 76.09.040.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Rules on this subject may be needed to clarify applicant expectations about additional geotechnical information on FPAs that the department of natural resources (DNR) may require where unstable slopes and landforms exist in and around the areas of the FPA.
This rule clarification would ensure that additional geologic information conforms to appropriate technological and professional standards needed to help DNR assess threats to public safety and appropriately classify these FPAs.
Process for Developing New Rule: The board will request input from interested stakeholders while developing rule language.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by mailing, faxing, or e-mailing comments to Patricia Anderson, Forest Practices Board, Rules Coordinator, Department of Natural Resources, Forest Practices Division, 1111 Washington Street S.E., 3rd floor, P.O. Box 47012, Olympia, WA 98504-7012, fax (360) 902-1428, e-mail
