Jan. 8, 2019 Water Quality Fee Stakeholder Workgroup

Meeting Today

We are holding a meeting with our wastewater/stormwater permit fee stakeholder workgroup today January 8, 2018 from 1:30pm-2:30pm to get initial feedback on our proposed fee adjustments for the 2020-21 biennium. There will be other opportunities in the future to comment.

Join the Webinar HERE.

On June 21, 2018, we started our biennial rulemaking process to amend Chapter 173-224 WAC in order to adjust wastewater/stormwater permit fees for the 2020-21 biennium. Now that the Governor’s 2020-21 budget proposals have been released, we’d like to discuss the preliminary fee adjustments we will be proposing for next biennium. We will send a notice when we start the public comment period on formal draft rule language and hold formal hearings, likely in early Spring 2019.

Today’s meeting is being held in person, at Ecology Headquarters (300 Desmond Drive SE, Lacey, WA 98503,) and as an online webinar.
