Federal and Washington State Surface andStorm Water Regulations
Overview of Regulations
Under the Federal Clean Water Act, The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program controls water pollution by regulating point sources that discharge pollutants into waters of the United States. The NPDES Storm Water Permit Program requires the implementation of stormwater programs. Currently the NPDES storm water permit program (Phase I) applies to only six local governments (Seattle, Tacoma, and the unincorporated areas of Snohomish, King, Pierce and Clark counties) and to Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) facilities within the legal boundaries of those jurisdictions. Industrial facilities that were owned or operated by municipalities with a population of less than 100,000 were previously exempted from the requirement to obtain a stormwater discharge permit.

New York State Laws
In 1990, New York became the first state to require all hospitals to establish protocols for identifying and treating victims of DV. Health care providers need to know the laws and regulations that apply to their work with victims so that they allocate enough time to meet those responsibilities, understand how their work intersects with that of other professionals, and intervene ways that do not compromise the safety of victims. Family Protection and Domestic Violence Intervention Act (Chapter 222 of the Laws of 1994) Hospitals and Diagnostic and Treatment Centers are required to provide copies of the Victim's Rights Notice to all suspected or confirmed adult DV patients, in a private and confidential manner. To view a Memorandum about the responsibilities of hospitals in complying with these requirements, visit the NYS DOH Web site at:

    Response to Emergency Regulations
    603 CMR 28.00
    November 28,2000 We thank the Board of Education for this opportunity to offer comment regarding the Massachusetts Emergency Regulations for special education. The Federation for Children with Special Needs is a non-profit advocacy organization with 25 years of experience in assisting families whose children have special needs. Our mailing list reaches over 18,000 parents and professionals across the state of Massachusetts. Annually we respond to over 6000 calls from concerned parents who are having difficulty accessing special education services for their child. The Federation has reviewed the Emergency Regulations as promulgated by the Massachusetts Board of Education on September 26, 2000. We appreciate this opportunity to comment on areas of concern that have become apparent in our interactions with families over the past several months. Important Issues Effecting Families in the Implementation of Emergency Regulations Since July of 1999, families of children with disabilities in Massachusetts have struggled to keep up with a constant barrage of changes to special education laws, regulations, forms and policies. Struggling alongside of families are school systems, as they attempt to understand how these changes will effect service delivery and how to educate staff regarding the changes. Complicating this confusion are instances in which the Emergency Regulations and accompanying advisories appear to be inconsistent with applicable laws and federal regulations.

    Federation for Children with Special Needs Testimony in Response to Proposed Changes in State Special Education Regulations We thank the Board of Education for this opportunity to offer testimony regarding the proposed revisions to the state regulations for special education. The Federation for Children with Special Needs is a non-profit advocacy organization with 25 years of experience in assisting families whose children have special needs. Our mailing list reaches over 18,000 parents and professionals across the state of Massachusetts. Annually we respond to over 6000 calls from concerned parents who are having difficulty accessing special education services for their child. Upon our review of these proposed regulations we are concerned that in some cases these proposed revisions may jeopardize educational services for students with disabilities in the Commonwealth. Our testimony today begins with an overview of general issues of concern regarding the proposed regulatory changes including; the dismissal of the “maximum feasible benefit” standard, eligibility guidelines, and the movement toward the use of federal IDEA regulations in place of the current Massachusetts regulations known as Chapter 766. We are also concerned with some of the definitions utilized in these proposed regulations. In addition we have specific concerns, such as; the diminishing of a families’ right to obtain an independent evaluation, the potential elimination of Parent Advisory Councils (PAC), changes in instructional grouping requirements and a loosening of timelines surrounding the implementation of Individual Education Plans (IEPs).

These laws may be vitally important to parents of disabled children, educators, child advocates, school psychologists, health care providers, and school administrators. Special education law is more than a legal specialty niche. Parents of children with disabilities often describe their first experience with special education law as entering a confusing labyrinth resulting in uncertainty and bewilderment. Teachers and administrators are overwhelmed with the complexity of regulations and paperwork, fearing that failure to do things perfectly will result in a lawsuit. We hope this section will provide practical and pertinent information necessary to survive and interpret the myriad of rules and regulations surrounding the needs of disabled children.

    Environmental Engineer, Environmental Protection Agency Region VII Charles D. Fulhage
    Department of Agricultural Engineering, University of Missouri-Columbia This publication addresses state and federal regulations for use and disposal of domestic wastewater sludge and biosolids. Sludge use and disposal operations include landfill and incineration. Sludge that is suitable for beneficial use is called biosolids. Examples of beneficial use are biosolids used as fertilizer or soil amendment. Industrial sludge is covered by a separate set of requirements and is not discussed in this publication.
    Missouri Clean Water Law
    In simple terms, the Missouri Clean Water Law states that "it is a violation to allow the discharge of a pollutant or contaminant to waters of the state" without a permit. For practical purposes, sludge, biosolids and stormwater runoff from use or disposal sites are considered pollutants.

    The federal regulations emphasize evaluation, selection, and training in the functional settings a person operates in every day. Responsibility for providing assistive technology in a particular functional setting is determined by federal regulations and definitions.
    Assistive Technology and Special Education
    The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), P.L. 101-476 (formerly known as P.L. 94-142) mandates a free and appropriate education for children and youth with disabilities. The guidelines require that an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) be developed for all children who are enrolled in a special education program. In terms of assistive technology, the PPT is required to give consideration to those assistive technologies which would help the student reach his or her educational, social, and individual goals. Within the IEP, assistive technology recommendations may appear in a list of specific accommodations which need to be made in order for the student to function in the least restrictive environment (LRE), or they may appear as part of the student's annual academic, transitional, or related services goals and short term objectives. In 1990 the Office of Special Education Programs issued a statement to further explain the federal mandates as they relate to assistive technology. This statement coupled with IDEA and the Technology-Related Assistance for Individuals with Disabilities Act "legitimized technology as an educational tool for students with disabilities" signaling a shift in responsibility to educational agencies for provision of assistive technology to students as part of their special education program.
