Policy 1-11 Update Process for the Water Quality Assessment

We completed a series of public dialogue on key issues identified through a scoping process on Water Quality Policy 1-11. This policy guides how we use data to determine the water quality status of individual waterbodies. We will begin to make revisions to Policy 1-11 based on feedback, suggestions, and ideas that came from the public meetings. It is our goal to have a revised Policy 1-11 draft ready for public review in Spring 2017.
