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. Chapter 8 rules concerning Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations will not be included in this revision process, but may be found here.

The proposed changes to 10 CSR 20-8.110 through 10 CSR 8.210 will be based on the 2004 and 2014 versions 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.

Strategy

The department plans to rescind 10 CSR 20-8.020 and incorporate the small design guide into the larger design guide rules with exceptions as appropriate.  As a result, there will be only one reference for any size wastewater treatment facility.  The department hopes this amendment will reduce confusion and streamline the rulemaking process in the future.

The department is proposing amending 10 CSR 20-8.110 through 10 CSR 20-8.220 through the same rulemaking folder process.  Each rule will have multiple scheduled stakeholder discussions.  After all the rules have been through the stakeholder process, the department will proceed with one encompassing rulemaking report, regulatory impact report, and fiscal note.  The department believes presenting all of the domestic Chapter 8 rules as a whole will better represent costs and impacts rather than focusing on a single component in a wastewater system.  Also, this proposal will reduce the rulemaking schedule by an estimated two years.

2016 Update

Timeline

No specific deadline has been developed for this task, due to the enormity of amending 13 rules.
