Aquatic Life Toxics Criteria, evening hearing

WAC 173-201A Water Quality Standards for Surface Waters of the State of Washington

April 10, 2024, 5:30 p.m., Online only

Each hearing will begin with a short presentation about the proposed rule, followed by a question and answer session. Formal testimony will start immediately after the question and answer session. The hearing will conclude once everyone who wants to provide testimony has had the opportunity to do so. Written comments will receive the same consideration as oral testimony.

This rulemaking would adopt changes to WAC 173-201A Water Quality Standards for Surface Waters of the State of Washington. We are considering revisions to aquatic life toxics criteria in WAC 173-201A-240 Toxic Substances to provide additional water quality protection for organisms that live in water.

For more information, see our Aquatic Life Toxics Criteria rulemaking page.

We write rules to implement and enforce state and federal environmental laws and rules.  Ecology follows a 3-phase process for rulemaking:

  1. Announcement and development
  2. Proposal
  3. Adoption

For each phase of the process, we update the rulemaking web page and notify interested parties. We also file notice in the Washington State Register. To learn more about Ecology’s rulemaking process, read the Frequently Asked Questions.
