64E-15.005: Sanitary Facilities
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: Currently recreational vehicle (RV) parks must have a certain number of sanitary facilities, dump stations and potable water supply stations, based on the number of RV spaces in the park. However, if an RV park only allows self contained recreational vehicles and has a water and sewer hookup at each RV site, the sanitary facilities requirement is redundant. The proposed change will remove the need for redundant sanitary facilities (showers, toilets, urinals, handwashing fixtures), dump stations and potable water supply stations in RV parks. The effect of this change will eliminate a financial burden on persons regulated by the department.
SUMMARY: The proposed amendment to Rule 64E-15.005, F.A.C., establishes an exemption from department required sanitary facilities, dump station and potable water rules for RV parks that only allow self contained recreational vehicles on site.
SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS: No Statement of Estimated Regulatory Cost was prepared.
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.
