The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) announced this week it is initiating its triennial review of the Connecticut Water Quality Standards (WQS).
As a part of its review, DEEP is accepting public comments from March 4 through April 5. Comments should be submitted via email to DEEP.WQS@ct.gov. During the public comment period, DEEP will conduct a public meeting on March 13, from 1:30-3:00 p.m. (snow date scheduled for March 15 from 1:30-3:00 p.m.) in the Gina McCarthy Auditorium at DEEP's headquarters located at 79 Elm Street, Hartford, CT.
The purpose of the triennial review, according to DEEP, is to evaluate the need to update or revise the WQS in order to remain consistent with state and federal law and to ensure that Connecticut's WQS continue to reflect the best available science and support sound water quality management policies. While DEEP is accepting comments on any provision of the WQS, areas already under consideration by DEEP as a result of the last triennial review conducted in 2014 include:
Any changes to the WQS proposed as a result of the triennial review will be implemented through a formal regulatory process, which will also include opportunities for public review and comment.
Should you have any questions regarding the above, please feel free to contact any of the attorneys listed in the sidebar.
