RULEMAKING PUBLIC HEARING
The Department Proposes to Withdraw the Rule Package Water Quality Rules and Regulations Chapter 12
The proposed revisions include new paragraphs that require public water supplies that propose acidization to submit plans that describe existing wells in the proposed area, mitigation plans, local geology, and placement and integrity of the annular seal and casing of the well so that the WDEQ Water Quality Division may ensure the acidization activities do not negatively impact underground sources of drinking water that are in the vicinity of the proposed activities. The proposed changes also correct formatting inconsistencies, capitalization errors, and redundancies.
Water Quality Rules and Regulations Chapter 8 and 14
The proposed revisions to Chapter 14 include revising the requirements for financial assurance instruments for consistency with other divisions within the Department and banking statutes and regulations; clarifying the requirements for closure, post-closure, and corrective action plans; and restructuring passages in the Chapter for clarity and to meet Secretary of State formatting requirements. WQD is proposing to create a new chapter, Chapter 28, to streamline and clarify the various design, construction, operation, monitoring, and annual reporting requirements for commercial oilfield waste disposal facilities.
