• Provide reasons for adopting the rule.
• Describe any differences between the proposed rule and the adopted rule.
• Provide Ecology’s response to public comments.

This Concise Explanatory Statement provides information on The Washington State Department of Ecology’s (Ecology) rule adoption for Chapter 197-11 WAC, SEPA (State Environmental Protection Act) Rules.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
