MTCA Rule Revision and MTCA/SMS Integration

MTCA/SMS Advisory Group - Meeting Information

For current (after January 2011) information  on the Sediment Management Standards rule please see the SMS Rulemaking Status page and the Sediment Cleanup Advisory Committee page

Ecology is seeking input on technical, scientific, and policy issues as we revise and update the MTCA cleanup regulation and cleanup portions of the Sediments Management Standards (SMS). The next phase of the MTCA and SMS regulation update process will include input from two advisory committees: a MTCA/SMS Advisory Group and a Sediment Workgroup. Input from both committees will be documented and fully considered by Ecology. However, Ecology will make the final decisions regarding specifics of proposed amendments to the MTCA Cleanup Regulation and SMS rule.

The committees include participants from environmental organizations, tribes, state and federal agencies, municipalities, ports, businesses, attorneys, and environment consultants. All EAG meetings are open to the public, however, lunch and refreshments are only available for Advisory and Workgroup participants.
