Division of Environmental Health
64E-6.013: Construction Materials and Standards for Treatment Receptacles
The Department of Health hereby gives notice:
On November 17, 2011, the Department of Health issued an order. The order was issued in response to a petition for a waiver filed on August 4, 2011, by Donald Bach, representing Norweco, Inc., regarding the “Singulair Green Aerobic Treatment System”. Petitioner sought a waiver of paragraphs 64E-6.013(2)(a) and (2)(f), Florida Administrative Code, which requires that treatment receptacles shall have no vertical seams and that the inlet and outlet devices shall be in accordance with ASTM C 923-98. Notice of the petition was published in the August 26, 2011, edition of the Florida Administrative Weekly.
The Department found that the Petitioner demonstrated that the underlying intent of the statute could be achieved by alternative means and that strict application of the rules would create a substantial hardship in the Petitioner’s particular circumstance. Therefore, pursuant to the requirements of Section 120.542(2), Florida Statutes, the Department GRANTED Petitioner’s request for a waiver.
A copy of the Order or additional information may be obtained by contacting:
Agency Clerk, Department of Health, Office of the General Counsel, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin #A02, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1703.
