Description The Washington Department of Ecology’s three oil transfer rules are designed to prevent spills when oil is transferred over water. The rules’ citations in the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) are Chapter 173-180 WAC for facilities, and Chapters 173-184 and 317-40 WAC for vessels.
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.
