Public meeting on Water Quality Standards set for November 17

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s Water Quality Standards (WQS) Program Quarterly Meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 2 to 4 p.m. at DEP headquarters in Charleston at 601 57th Street SE.

During the meeting, DEP staff will be reviewing public comments regarding suggested revisions to West Virginia’s WQS rule (47CSR2). These comments are now available on DEP’s WQS web page: DEP will also discuss the Triennial Review process, which will involve submission of a revised WQS rule in 2016 for consideration in the 2017 legislative session. In addition, DEP will review how this process has changed due to the recently revised federal regulation (40CFR§131).
