Description Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) has issued a final General Permit for Biosolids Management (general permit) following a public process of review and comment.

The general permit applies to all treatment works treating domestic sewage in the state. The majority of these facilities are publicly owned wastewater treatment plants. Other types of facilities subject to the general permit include privately owned wastewater treatment plants that treat only domestic sewage, composting facilities that treat biosolids as a feedstock, biosolids beneficial use facilities, and septage management facilities.

This document contains Ecology’s response to all comments received on the draft general permit during the public comment period that ran from May 19, 2010 – June 22, 2010.

Five persons submitted a total of 9 written comments on the draft general permit. Comments 8 and 9 are actually composed of several comments, but both are considered as single comments for the purposes of the general permit. Table 1 lists the commenters and the reference number(s) for the comments submitted. All comments along with Ecology’s responses follow Table 1. The text in all comments below is exactly as submitted to Ecology.
