The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s (WVDEP) Division of Water and Waste Management (DWWM) is accepting recommendations for revisions to Legislative Rule §47 CSR 2, “Requirements Governing Water Quality Standards.” This rule establishes requirements governing standards of water quality for the surface waters of the state. State water quality standards are developed to help protect and preserve water quality necessary to meet and maintain designated or assigned uses, such as swimming, recreation, public water supply, and aquatic life.
The WVDEP is accepting these recommendations for suggested rule changes in preparation for the Water Quality Standards Triennial Review, as required by the federal Clean Water Act. The WVDEP reviews these recommendations before determining changes that will be proposed in 2023 for the 2024 Legislative session.
