Status of Rulemaking

Negotiated rulemaking meeting June 7, 2022.

Overview

DEQ initiated this rulemaking in compliance with Executive Order No. 2020-01, Zero-Based Regulation (EO 2020-01), issued by Governor Little on January 16, 2020.  Pursuant to EO 2020-01, each rule chapter effective on June 30, 2020, shall be reviewed by the agency that promulgated the rule. The review will be conducted according to a schedule established by the Division of Financial Management, Office of the Governor (DFM), posted at https://adminrules.idaho.gov/forms_menu.html. This is one of the DEQ rule chapters up for review in 2022.

The goal of the rulemaking is to perform a critical and comprehensive review of the entire chapter in an attempt to reduce overall regulatory burden, streamline various provisions, and increase clarity and ease of use.

This rulemaking also includes provisions that will allow DEQ to issue general reuse permits.  General permits will be issued for specific but common uses of recycled water that need less DEQ oversight due to the nature and/or volume of the recycled water.  General reuse permits will reduce the permitting process for certain uses of recycled water while still being protective of the environment and human health.
