The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) released the Final 2010 305(b)/303(d) Water Quality Assessment Integrated Report (Integrated Report) on February 28, 2011.
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 August 23, 2010 through September 24, 2010. Comments were received from the public and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In response to comments, the report was slightly revised and resubmitted to EPA on December 10, 2010 then approved on February 9, 2011.
The final report, responses to written comments, and map images are available for download on our website at http://www.deq.virginia.gov/wqa/.

These CD-ROMs include the entire final report, all of its appendices, and a digital book of maps developed from the 2010 assessment.
