Service animal requirements for airports

I believe this is what your looking for:
Below is the language used in the final rule published in the Federal Register
Part II
Department of Transportation
14 CFR Part 382
Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Air Travel; Final Rule
Page 39
Paragraph only:

One new requirement at U.S. airports is to provide, in cooperation with the airport operator, animal relief areas for service animals that accompany passengers who are departing, arriving, or connecting at the facility.

Subject: CAA: Mutual Help List,  Service animal requirements for airports

Everyone -

I've had my tenant airlines come to me stating that the DOT has requirements for the airport to provide a designated service animal relief area (for lack of a better term) and supplies such as watering dishes, gloves and plastic bags for the animals available at all times.

I've looked through 14 CFR 382 and the ADA guidelines for what the airport is legally required to do, but I can't find any specific requirements in any regulations.

The airlines say the DOT requires these procedures and supplies to be in place by May 13th, or the airport can be fined.

My question: Does anyone know what the requirements are - or where I could find them in the regulations?

Thanks for your help.
