Updating Water Quality Standards for Recreational Use

Chapter 173-201A WAC

July 17, 2018 - September 14, 2018

We are accepting public comment on changes to state water quality standards that protect water contact recreational uses. We are proposing changes to the rule language to update the standards used to protect people from waterborne disease while they are enjoying recreational activities such as swimming and boating in state waters.

  The Washington State Department of Ecology is updating fresh and marine water quality standards (in Chapter 173-201A WAC) for the protection of people who contact water during recreational use in state waters.
