Description Policy 710A implements RCW 70.105D.090 and WAC 173-340-710. This statute and law exempt certain remedial actions from the procedural requirements of specific state environmental permits and local government permits that are conducted under the Model Toxics Control Act. To be eligible for these exemptions, the remedial action must be conducted by Ecology or be authorized under an enforcement order; an agreed order; or a consent decree. The intent of the exemption is to expedite cleanup of contaminated sites.
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.
