PURPOSE AND EFFECT: Develop rules to clarify language; bring incorporated references current; incorporate necessary modifications to avert waterborne pathogen transmission; and remove certain language to eliminate the need for variances being filed by the regulated community and incorporate a form by reference. The effect will be to provide a greater usability for the regulated community and the department.
SUMMARY: The proposed rule incorporates changes suggested by the Office of General Counsel. The proposals address rules and/or rule titles, codes and referenced standards; forms, waterborne pathogen transmission; setbacks in RV parks; and a grammatical error.
SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS: The agency has determined that this rule will have an impact on small business. There are currently over 5500 parks and camps in Florida. This rule change has a potential impact on anyone seeking to construct or modify an RV Park or install a non-potable water system in a park or camp. The department anticipates a positive impact for industry for the construction of new or modified RV parks; no impact for changes to referenced codes, rules or referenced standards; and a negative impact on those existing parks that have potable and non-potable water pipes co-located in parks or camps. The department does not believe there to be more that 12 parks or camps where potable and non-potable water supplies are co-located. No effect on revenues or expenditures is anticipated for any governmental entity other than the Department of Health. The estimated costs to the department for this proposed rule change are $3000.00. No new filing fees, licenses or licensing fees are required. Approximately 12 parks are anticipated to be adversely affected; new RV parks will be positively affected; and other existing parks will experience a no effect. The estimated cost for compliance, where potable and non-potable water spigots co-located, is between $1.00 and $10.00 per space. There is no anticipated impact on small counties or small cities. The affected parks are not mandated how to correct the co-location of potable and non-potable water but are allowed to formulate their own options to meet the requirements. There have been no written proposals submitted under paragraph 120.541(1)(a), F.S.
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.
