Monitoring and enforcement.

The council will contract with the department of ecology for the monitoring activities for dangerous wastes regulated by this chapter under a certification agreement. As a result of said monitoring activities, DOE shall report to the council any activity by a permittee which in its judgment requires the initiation of appropriate enforcement activities by the council. The council shall then take or initiate action to enforce the terms of any certification agreement. This in no way shall restrict any enforcement by other public agencies and officials under existing law. If the department of ecology determines that immediate action is needed to enforce the act or any statute or regulation derived therefrom, it shall report immediately to the chairman who shall initiate such immediate enforcement action as may be necessary. Such action shall remain in effect until confirmed or modified by the council.
