Regulation I, Sections 6.01 (Components of New Source Review Program):
Changes to Section 6.01 of Regulation I update the Agency’s references to be consistent with the latest version of Ecology’s rules. There are no new provisions of those Ecology regulations included in these updates. The amendments only update the referenced effective dates of previous Ecology rule provisions adopted. We have amended these regulations several times before, the most recent being in September 2011 in response to updated Ecology regulations which became effective on April 1, 2011.
