Five Year Rule Review

Feedback Welcome

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) is required to review its rules at least once every five years and prepare and obtain the Governor’s Regulatory Review Council’s (GRRC’s) approval of a written report.1

As part of this process, ADEQ would like your feedback on Waste Programs rules in the Arizona Administrative Code (AAC), specifically Title 18, Chapter 7 (Remedial Action) and Title 18, Chapter 16 (Water Quality Assurance Revolving Fund). The rules found in Title 18, Chapter 7 establish standards for soil remediation; implement prospective purchaser agreements; and establish fees and processes related to the Voluntary Remediation Program and the Declaration of Environmental Use Restriction. The rules found in Title 18, Chapter 16 support ADEQ in identifying, prioritizing, assessing, and resolving the threat of contaminated soil and groundwater sites in the state. Your comments will be included in these two Five Year Rule Review Reports to GRRC.

Please submit comments no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 1, 2021, to, or by mail to:

Mark Lewandowski, Waste Programs Division
Arizona Department of Environmental Quality
1110 W. Washington Street
Phoenix, AZ 85007
