Response to Public Comments
Contingency plans are generally approved, with some exceptions, for five years. Any new or updated plans can be publicly reviewed for a 30-day period. Ecology considers any comments
received and makes a decision to approve, deny, or conditionally approve the plan. A conditional approval means Ecology has identified a plan deficiency and requested these items be submitted
before a full approval is granted. When updates to the plan are received and Ecology determines that the plan is satisfactory, it is made available for an additional 30-day public review
before final decision to approve the plan.
