Information Posted about DEC’s New Approach for Clean Water Plans

DEC is implementing a new approach to addressing the water quality issues in identified lakes, rivers and streams on the Section 303(d) List of Impaired Waters. This new approach is described in a document just posted to DEC’s website entitled, the Vision Approach to Implement Clean Water Act 303(d) Program and Clean Water Planning (PDF, 832 KB). This document describes New York’s adaptive strategy to prioritize waterbodies for the development of clean water plans based on the state’s identified priority concerns: nutrients, pathogens and public use. For more information about clean water plans, visit DEC’s Clean Water Plans webpage.
