PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
[Filed June 13, 2019, 4:25 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Revising chapter 332-120 WAC to add a reasonable method of survey monument preservation throughout the bituminous surface treatment process, commonly referred to as chip seal.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The chip seal process is a temporary covering of survey monuments in the roadway. It is not a removal or destruction of survey monuments. The proposed rule will provide a means to document the chip seal overlay and require that survey monuments be uncovered.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Coordination on compliance will be with the board of registration for engineers and land surveyors and the county road administration board (CRAB).
Process for Developing New Rule: Drafted in conjunction with stakeholders, including the board of registration and CRAB. The full rule-making process will be used.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Patrick J. Beehler, PLS, CFedS, 1111 Washington Street S.E., Olympia, WA 98504-7030, phone 360-902-1181, fax 306-902-1778 [360-902-1778], email firstname.lastname@example.org, web site https://www.dnr.wa.gov/; or Bob Knuth, PLS, CFedS, 801 88th Avenue S.E., Tumwater, WA 98504-7019, phone 360-902-1197, fax 360-902-1191, email email@example.com, web site https://www.dnr.wa.gov/public-land-survey-office.
