Periodic Review of this Chapter
Includes a Small Business Impact Review
Date Filed: 7/1/2001
Pursuant to Executive Order Number Twenty-five (1998), the Department of Environmental Quality on behalf of the Virginia Waste Management Board, will review the Administrative Procedures for Hazardous Waste Facility Site Certification (9 VAC 20-40-10 et seq.). The purpose of the review is to determine whether the regulations should be terminated, amended or retained in their current form. The review of the regulations will be guided by the principles listed in Executive Order Number Twenty-five (1998).
The purpose of these regulations is to protect public health and/or welfare with the least possible costs and intrusiveness to the citizens and businesses of the Commonwealth; to establish processes for evaluation of proposed hazardous waste facility site suitability, negotiation of siting issues and resolution of conflicts; to ensure that suitable new sites for hazardous waste facilities can be certified in a timely and efficient manner; and to protect public health, safety and welfare and the environment by limiting certification to sites that have been adequately evaluated and deemed suitable for use.
The department and the board are seeking public comment on the review of any issue relating to these regulations including whether (i) the regulations are effective in achieving their goals; (ii) the regulations are essential to protect the health, safety of welfare of citizens or for the economical performance of important governmental functions; (iii) there are less burdensome and less intrusive alternatives for achieving the purpose of the regulations; and (iv) the regulations are clearly written and easily understandable by the affected persons.
Comments on the above are welcome and will be accepted until July 9, 2001. Comments should be sent to Robert G. Wickline, Department of Environmental Quality, Post Office Box 10009, 629 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia 23240-0009, (804) 698-4213, fax (804) 698-4327, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
