62-672.720: Assessment of Existing Phosphogypsum Stacks
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose and effect of the proposed rule amendment will be to repeal rules identified during the comprehensive rule review required by Executive Order 11-01 as duplicative, unnecessarily burdensome, or no longer necessary.
SUMMARY: Rule 62-672.100, F.A.C., is being repealed as it only describes the intent of the rule and is informational only and not essential for implementation of the provisions of Chapter 62-672, F.A.C. Rule 62-672.620, F.A.C., requires the owners of phosphogypsum stack systems to assess the existing perimeter earthen dikes of such systems and specifies a deadline for the assessments that has now expired. Since the activities have been completed within the expired timeframe, the rule is no longer applicable and is being repealed. Rule 62-672.720, F.A.C., requires owners of existing phosphogypsum stack to assess the safety and stability of the stack and specifies a deadline for completion of the assessments that has now expired. Since the activities have been completed within the expired timeframe, the rule is no longer applicable and is being repealed.
OTHER RULES INCORPORATING THIS RULE: None.
EFFECT ON THOSE OTHER RULES: No Effect.
SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS AND LEGISLATIVE RATIFICATION:
The Agency has determined that this will not have an adverse impact on small business or likely increase directly or indirectly regulatory costs in excess of $200,000 in the aggregate within one year after the implementation of the rule. A SERC has not been prepared by the agency.
The Agency has determined that the proposed rule is not expected to require legislative ratification based on the statement of estimated regulatory costs or if no SERC is required, the information expressly relied upon and described herein: Pursuant to the Department's review under Executive Order 11-01 the repeal of these unnecessary rules will not have any adverse impacts or impose regulatory costs.
Any person who wishes to provide information regarding a statement of estimated regulatory costs, or provide a proposal for a lower cost regulatory alternative must do so in writing within 21 days of this notice.
