What is the Policy Forum?
The Policy Forum is a process that gave 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 were welcome to attend the Policy Forum.
Ecology hosted Water Quality Policy Forums on the current rule-making work to enable all interested stakeholders to participate in the rule development process. The Policy Forums were initiated in October 2012 and concluded in September 2013. Policy Forum presentations and meeting materials are available on the following rule activity timeline.
