EPA Listening Sessions on Potential Revisions to Water Quality Standards
Two listening sessions will be held on potential changes to the water quality standards regulation before proposing a national rule. Potential revisions include strengthening protection for water bodies with water quality that already exceeds or meet the interim goals of the Clean Water Act; ensuring that standards reflect a continued commitment to these goals wherever attainable; improving transparency of regulatory decisions; and strengthening federal oversight. The public listening sessions will be held via audio teleconferences on August 24 and 26, 2010, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EDT. EPA will also hold separate listening sessions for state, tribal and local governments.
