Your Comments Are Needed to Protect Water Quality

WVDEP’s proposed revisions to the state water quality standards are set to be considered by the Legislative Rule-Making Committee on Dec. 7.

Take action to tell those committee members to not allow more pollution in our water. Whatever changes happen on Dec. 7 will be voted on by the full legislature in the coming session.

Some of the proposed changes will allow more toxins in our water. Check out our Water Quality Standards Rule fact sheet to learn more. To see the full rule and the comments submitted to WVDEP during the triennial review process click here. You can read the comments submitted by WV Rivers here.
