Continuance of WSR 15-13-118.
Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 14-13-004.
Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: New chapter 173-219 WAC, Reclaimed water. Ecology is extending the public comment period by thirty days in response to request from stakeholders.
"The draft rule and the guidance document total hundreds of pages. An extension of the comment period is warranted given the length of the document, the implications of the rule, and complexity of the issues. Also, during the summer it is harder for jurisdictions, utilities, and committees to coordinate review and offer comment. The extended comment period will allow stakeholders to thoroughly review the proposed rule and provide meaningful feedback."
Date of Intended Adoption: October 28, 2015.
