Water Protection Program
Chapter 8 Stakeholder Workgroup
Description: The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has given priority to amending the Chapter 8 Design Guides. Many of these rules have not been updated for the past couple decades. 10 CSR 20-8.500, Secondary Containment for Agricultural Facilities, will not be included in the revision process to Chapter 8.
The proposed changes to 10 CSR 20-8.110 through 10 CSR 8.210 will be based on the 2004 version of the “Recommended Standards for Wastewater Facilities” (otherwise known as the 10 States Standards) developed by the Wastewater Committee of the Great Lakes-Upper Mississippi River Board of State and Provincial Public Health and Environmental Managers. The 10 States Standards are considered national standards and are used throughout the United States and Canada. Missouri is an original member of this committee and continues to participate today.
The Chapter 8 Stakeholder Workgroup is an informal and voluntary public participation activity conducted in addition to the formal public participation process required for formal rulemaking. The Missouri Clean Water Commission will conduct a public hearing and accept comments on the proposed rule amendments after publication in the Missouri Register. The workgroup’s primary purpose is to provide engaged stakeholders an opportunity to provide input and comment on proposed rulemaking changes. The discussions and comments from the workgroup sessions will be considered while the Department drafts and finalizes the Chapter 8 rule amendments.
Timeline: No specific deadline has been developed for this task, due to the enormity of amending 13 rules.
