Comment period open on draft 2020 surface water quality report
The Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ), Water Quality Division (WQD) regulates surface water quality in Wyoming. Section 305(b) of the federal Clean Water Act (CWA) requires that a report of the surface water quality condition of each state be provided to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) every two years during even numbered years. In addition, Section 303(d) requires that a list of the impaired waters requiring Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) be provided. Wyoming’s 2020 Integrated 305(b) and 303(d) Report combines the requirements of both sections into a single document.
