Final Water Quality Standards Filed
The Final Proposed Water Quality Standards have been filed with the Secretary of State and will be presented to the Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules on November 3rd. All of the filing materials, including comments received, a responsiveness summary, and relevant forms are available at: http://dec.vermont.gov/watershed/laws. The adoption of these new WQS will pave the way for further modernization in the classification and protection of surface waters, and the development of the Antidegradation Rule.
