Kentucky Division of Water announces listening sessions on water quality standards

Triennial review required under provisions of Clean Water Act

In accordance with the Clean Water Act (CWA), Congress gave states the responsibility to establish objectives or goals for managing, maintaining, and enhancing water quality. This responsibility is commonly referred to as state water quality standards (WQS).  States are required to perform periodic reviews of state water quality standards, known as a Triennial Review, and hold a public hearing every three years pursuant to Section 303(c)(1) of the CWA.

The Kentucky Division of Water (DOW) hereby gives notice of its intent to conduct three public listening sessions to satisfy the requirements of Section 303(c)(1) of the CWA. These listening sessions will assist the agency in determining what revisions, if any, may be appropriate in this Triennial Review of Kentucky’s WQS.
