EPA extends comment deadline on proposed water quality rule for Washington

As we reported in the previous Bulletin, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has filed a draft water quality rule for our state because of delays in adoption of such a rule by our own Department of Ecology. Please read the previous article for the whole story. The EPA would prefer that the state adopt their own rule, and we still expect that to happen early in 2016. Given all the uncertainties around this issue, AWC will be preparing comments on the EPA proposal. At this time we recommend cities consider making comments as well. The deadline to comment has been extended from November 13 to December 28.
