Interim Methods for Evaluating Use Support for Great Salt Lake UPDES Permits

DWQ is requesting comments on the Review Draft of the Interim Methods for Evaluating Use Support for Great Salt Lake Utah Pollution Discharge Elimination (UPDES) System Permits.This document describes the methods that DWQ proposes to use to ensure that permitted discharges to Great Salt Lake are protective of waterfowl, shore birds and other water-oriented wildlife including their necessary food chain until numeric criteria are available. DWQ is committed to developing this approach in Core Component 1: Developing Aquatic Life Numeric Criteria for Priority Pollutants of the Great Salt Lake Water Quality Strategy. Comments can be submitted via email to Chris Bittner or by regular mail to the Utah Division of Water Quality, attn: Chris Bittner, P.O. Box 144870, Salt Lake City, UT 84114-4870. Comments must be received by Monday November 24, 2014. Questions should be directed to Mr. Bittner at 801-536-4371.
