The Washington State Department of Ecology proposes to repeal existing Chapter 173-360 WAC and adopt new Chapter 173-360A WAC, Underground Storage Tank (UST) Regulations. As part the rulemaking, Ecology proposes to:
• Incorporate federal rule changes needed to maintain state program approval, as specified in 40 CFR Parts 280 and 281 and adopted in June 2015.
• Incorporate changes to the state’s UST program specified in the authorizing state statute, Chapter 90.76 RCW.
• Make other selective changes to the requirements governing the state’s UST program (such as updating UST service provider requirements).
• Streamline rule requirements, improve rule clarity, and improve consistency within the rule and with other state and federal laws and rules.

More information about the rule proposal and how to comment is available at: https://www.ecology.wa.gov/Regulations-Permits/Laws-rules/Rulemaking/WAC-173-360-Mar16.
