The Division of Water Quality (DWQ) submitted the 2012-2014 Integrated Report to EPA for final approval on December 16, 2014. On January 20, 2015 EPA provided DWQ with several comments on the State’s proposed final 303(d) List for 2012-2014. During February and March, DWQ reviewed and responded to the discrepancies EPA found between their and DWQ’s 303(d) List. On March 27, 2015 DWQ re-submitted the 2012-2014 Report to EPA for final approval.
DWQ is pleased to announce that the Region 8 Environmental Protection Agency has officially approved the 2012-2014 Integrated Report. As EPA’s final approval letter indicates, this is a “partial approval/ further review pending” action, the details of which are discussed in the letter and attachment.
