Planning standards.

(1) Ecology shall apply a planning standard when determining the ability of a rail plan holder to meet the requirements of these regulations. The planning standards described in this chapter do not constitute cleanup standards nor response standards that must be met by the holder of a contingency plan. Failure to remove a discharge within the time periods set out in this chapter does not constitute failure to comply with a contingency plan, for purposes of this section or for the purpose of imposing administrative, civil, or criminal penalties under any other law.
In an actual spill event, initial deployment shall be guided by safety considerations. The responsible party shall address the entire volume of an actual spill regardless of the planning standards.
(2) Ecology will use the procedures described in WAC 173-182-345 and 173-182-348 to evaluate recovery capability required in these planning standards.
