The Water Quality Standards Workgroup is a stakeholder workgroup organized by the department to discuss water quality standard-related topics. The group provides input and assistance to the department in developing and refining appropriate water quality standards for protecting Missouri’s streams, lakes and wetlands.
The department continually works to improve Missouri’s water quality standards to best reflect the most recent science and regulatory obligations extended to Missouri’s waters. The Clean Water Act (CWA) requires that states from time to time, but at least once every three years, review applicable water quality standards and, as appropriate, modify and adopt water quality standards.
