Response to Comments Being Developed for Proposed Water Quality Criteria

On February 5, 2013, in response to comments received during the Division of Water’s triennial review of Kentucky’s water quality standards, the Division made notice of the agency’s proposal to update Kentucky’s water quality criteria for selenium to reflect the best available science. The Division requested and has received public comment on the proposed amendments to the proposed water quality criteria for selenium.

In order to review, properly consider, and respond to the public comments received the Division is deferring legislative consideration of the amendments to the April 2013 meeting of the Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee (ARRS). The Division’s responses to submitted public comments and any amendments to the proposed criteria will be made available to the public on the division’s website at prior to the meeting of the subcommittee.
