The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will release the Final 2006 305(b)/303(d) Water Quality Assessment Integrated Report (Integrated Report) on October 30, 2006.
The Integrated Report combines both the 305(b) Water Quality Assessment and the 303(d) Report on Impaired Waters. This report was available for public comment from July 10, 2006 through August 11, 2006. Comments were received from the public and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In response to comments, the report was revised and resubmitted to EPA in September 2006 and approved.
The final report, responses to written comments, and map images are available for download on our website at http://www.deq.virginia.gov/wqa/.
