Existing Framework, aka Baseline Rule

To inform and guide the development of the draft and final rule, Ecology compiled a preliminary “baseline rule" of the existing framework of laws, rules, and guidance currently used to regulate the use of reclaimed water.
Ecology has since learned that “baseline rule” is a technical term used for a draft rule. To avoid confusion, the “baseline rule” will be called the “Existing Framework” in the future and the new draft rule will be called the “draft rule”.
