The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will release the Draft 2018 Water Quality Assessment Integrated Report (Integrated Report) on January 22, 2019 for public comment.
The Integrated Report combines both the 305(b) Water Quality Assessment and the 303(d) Report on Impaired Waters. Both are required by the Federal Clean Water Act and the Virginia Water Quality Monitoring Information and Restoration Act. The report will be available for download on our website at https://www.deq.virginia.gov/Programs/Water/WaterQualityInformationTMDLs/WaterQualityAssessments.aspx throughout the public comment period, which will end February 21, 2019 (please copy and paste the link into your browser if it does not work).
A public webinar summarizing the Integrated Report is scheduled for February 13, 2019. The public is invited to submit questions pertaining to the report during this event. All submitted questions will be addressed in a “FAQ” document that will be subsequently posted on the DEQ webpage.
