DEQ to Host Public Workshops on Triennial Review of Idaho's Surface Water Quality Standards
Wednesday, April 5, 2017
Posted by: Gay Dawn Oyler
The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will host three workshops to provide opportunities for public participation in the agency's triennial review of Idaho's surface water quality standards.
Section 303 of the federal Clean Water Act requires states to modify and improve their water quality standards at least once every three years.
DEQ has prepared a list of potential water quality standards topics for consideration (at right) and is inviting the public to review the topics and attend the workshops to discuss these and any other issues of concern.
Workshops will be held in Boise, Pocatello, and Coeur d'Alene.
