Water Quality Policy Forum and Delegate's Table
Ecology is hosting a Water Quality Policy Forum on the current rulemaking work to provide a structured dialog throughout the rulemaking process.
What is the Policy Forum?
The Policy Forum is a process that gives all interested persons an opportunity to learn about the new rulemaking processes to adopt new human health-based water quality standards and implementation tools. All interested persons are welcome to attend the Policy Forum.
What is the Delegate’s Table?
The larger Policy Forum is centered around a core group Ecology identified to help work through key policy issues. The core group, called the Delegate’s Table, consists of individuals representing the interests of their respective communities. The Delegate’s Table will provide advice and perspective to the agency as it addresses the complex science and public policy issues of the rulemaking.
