Section 303(d) of the 1972 Federal Clean Water Act requires states to submit a list of waters that do not meet water quality standards to the Environmental Protection Agency for approval by April 1 of even-numbered years. The Division of Water Quality (DWQ) staff will provide an overview of the regulatory context, a brief summary of the DWQ’s monitoring programs, and details of the 303(d) Listing Methodology. In November 2012, the Environmental Management Commission (EMC) decided to approve future 303(d) Listing Methodologies, beginning with the 2014 cycle. From September-November 2012, DWQ accepted public comment on the Listing Methodology. Twelve organizations and individuals submitted comments. Staff will summarize comments and proposed revisions to the Listing Methodology in response to the comments. DWQ requests that the Water Quality Committee approve the proposed 2014 303(d) Listing Methodology. (Attachments enclosed: Public Review Draft 2014 303(d) Listing Methods, Revised Draft 2014 303(d) Listing MethodologyPublic Comments to Draft 2014 303(d) Listing Methodology, and Power Point Presentation)
