Public Involvement
Comment Period and Public Hearings

At this early point in the rule-making process, comments are not being solicited, and no public hearings are scheduled. When the agency is soliciting comments, or meetings or hearings are scheduled, our pages will be updated with that information.

Ecology's response to your comments

All of the comments we receive will become part of the official record. We will publish responses to comments on the rule revision in a document called a Concise Explanatory Statement (CES). The CES is required by the Administrative Procedure Act (RCW 34.05) and is available after the rule is adopted. You will find your name listed in the document with a reference to where in the document Ecology responded to your comments.
