      D.  Any domesticated animal that enters any place where food is stored, prepared, served or sold to the public, or any other public building or hall.  However, this subsection shall not apply to any person using a trained service animal, to veterinary offices or hospitals or to animal shows, exhibitions or organized dog-training classes if at least twenty-four hours' advance notice has been given to the animal care and control authority by the persons requesting to hold the animal shows, exhibitions or organized dog-training classes;
      E.  Any female domesticated animal, whether licensed or not, while in heat and accessible to other animals for purposes other than controlled and planned breeding;
      F.  Any domesticated animal that chases, runs after or jumps at vehicles using the public streets and alleys;

      I.  Any vicious animal or animal with vicious propensities that runs at large at any time is off the owner's premises not securely leashed on a line or confined and in the control of a person of suitable age and discretion to control or restrain the animal.  However, in addition to other remedies and penalties, the provisions of this chapter relating to vicious animals shall apply;

      SECTION 2.  Ordinance 1239, Sections 2 through 9, as amended, and K.C.C. 12.44.260 are each hereby repealed.
      SECTION 3.  Resolution 16588, as amended, and K.C.C. 12.44.270 are each hereby repealed.
      SECTION 4.  Ordinance 3139, Section 101, and K.C.C. 12.86.010 are each hereby amended to read as follows:
      It is the policy of King County to minimize the exposure of citizens to the physiological and psychological dangers of excessive noise and to protect, promote and preserve the public health, safety and welfare.  It is the express intent of the county council to control the level of noise in a manner ((which)) that promotes:  commerce; the use, value and enjoyment of property; sleep and repose; and the quality of the environment.  The sheriff serves an important function in maintaining public health, safety and welfare by responding to resident complaints, typically in the context of neighborhood noise disturbances.  The director also plays an important role in noise control through oversight of permitted activities that generate noise, such as construction work.  The sheriff and the director each have authority to enforce this chapter pursuant to its provisions.
      SECTION 5.  Ordinance 3139, Section 102, and K.C.C. 12.86.020 are each hereby amended to read as follows:
      Since the county enacted its noise ordinance in 1977, population density has increased, creating more noise-related conflict.  Conversely, county resources have shrunk, as has the county's ability to effectively enforce its noise ordinance, especially the expensive-to-enforce decibel-related provisions.  These factors point to a need to revise the county's approach to controlling excessive noise.  The county can better protect, promote and preserve the public's health, safety and welfare by decreasing reliance on decibel provisions and improving its public disturbance-based enforcement system.
      The problem of noise in King County has been studied since 1969 by two appointed citizen committees and since 1974 by the councils of King County and the city of Seattle.  On the basis of this experience and knowledge of conditions within King County, the ((King County)) council ((hereby)) finds that special conditions exist within the county ((which make necessary any and all differences between Chapters 12.86 through 12.100 and the regulations adopted)) that necessitate standards, limits and control measures regarding noise that may differ from those adopted or controlled by the Washington state Department of Ecology.
      SECTION 6.  K.C.C. 12.87.010, as amended by this ordinance, is hereby recodified as a section in K.C.C. chapter 12.86.
      SECTION 7.  Ordinance 3139, Section 2 (part), as amended, and K.C.C. 12.87.010 are each hereby amended to read as follows:

      F.  The operator shall control surface water and site discharges to comply with K.C.C. chapter 9.04 and the surface water design manual and K.C.C. chapter 9.12 and the stormwater pollution prevention manual.  For the life of the mineral resource operation and until site reclamation is complete, the operator shall maintain a valid Washington state ((d))Department of ((e))Ecology National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System individual permit or maintain coverage under the sand and gravel general permit.  The operator shall keep onsite and available for department review copies of the erosion and sediment control plan, the applicable National Pollution Discharge Elimination System individual or general permit and the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan.  The operator shall make the plans and permit available for public inspection upon request.  The operator shall provide to the department copies of the monitoring results on permit monitoring data submittal dates.  The department shall make the monitoring results available for public inspection.  If the department determines that National Pollution Discharge Elimination System monitoring frequency or type is not adequate to meet the demands of the site and the requirements of this subsection, the department may require more frequent and detailed monitoring and may require a program designed to bring the site into compliance;
      G.  The operator shall not excavate below the contours determined through hydrologic studies necessary to protect groundwater and the upper surface of the saturated groundwater that could be used for potable water supply;
