Description Based on research and analysis required by the Regulatory Fairness Act (RFA) – RCW 19.85.070 - Ecology has determined that the proposed rule, Wastewater Discharge Permit Fees (chapter 173-224 WAC) may have disproportionate impacts on small businesses. The RFA directs Ecology to determine if there is likely to be disproportionate impact, and if legal and feasible, reduce this disproportionate impact.

The Small Business Economic Impact Statement (SBEIS) is intended to be read with the associated Cost-Benefit Analysis (Ecology publication #15-10-030), which contains more in-depth discussion of the analysis.
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.
