Water Quality Division: The Water Quality Division (WQD) will present updated proposed revisions to Water Quality Rules and Regulations (WQRR) Chapter 14, Financial Assurance Requirements and Chapter 28, Minimum Standards for the Design and Construction of Commercial Oilfield Waste Disposal Facilities. The proposed revisions to Chapter 28 address comments that were discussed at the October 17, 2019 and December 11, 2019 WWAB meetings. 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. At the conclusion of the presentation, WQD will request that the WWAB consider the proposed revisions and provide advice for consideration to the Environmental Quality Council.
