Summary: The WQD initiated a revision of Water Quality Rules and Regulations, Chapter 1, Wyoming Surface Water Quality Standards, on September 12,2011 with the release of a public notice and rule revision outreach document.

The proposed revisions resolve EPA disapprovals from the last rule making; update numeric criteria for priority and non-priority pollutants; revise the duration ofthe E. coli geometric mean; and correct a number of omissions, errors or inconsistencies that have been identified since the most recent revision in April 2007. In addition to the rules, the Implementation Policies for Antidegradation, Mixing Zones and Dilution Allowances, Turbidity and Use Attainability Analysis have been revised to accommodate changes in t~ rules.
