EPA Sets Strategy for Water Quality Standards and Criteria
EPA's Office of Science and Technology has released the Strategy for Water Quality Standards and Criteria: Setting Priorities to Strengthen the Foundation for Protecting and restoring the Nation's Waters.
This document outlines the priority strategic actions that EPA plans to undertake with partners over the next six years to strengthen the vital foundation for a wide range of programs under the Clean Water Act. The Strategy reflects an extensive review of water-related mandates; the results of over 50 listening sessions with over 350 people, and recommendations from the National Research Council, the General Accounting Office, and the Inspector General.
