(1) Exemptions from the elevation requirements of WAC 200-130-015(3) are granted automatically for: (a) Facilities where their use and purpose require construction below one hundred-year flood plains and/or special flood hazard areas (e.g., fish pens, fish ladders, holding ponds, dams, etc.); (b) Roads, bridges, and highway facilities. (2) All other exemptions from the elevation requirements of WAC 200-130-015 must be granted by the department of enterprise services, office of risk management. Agencies seeking an exemption must submit a purpose and use statement, including an explanation of why and how the structure, development, or substantial improvement will not comply with these flood mitigation standards.

These requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and the risk manager will issue a letter of exemption no later than fourteen days after receipt of such request, if in his/her sole discretion it is appropriate to do so.
