Missouri Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Certification

In accordance with the state Clean Water Law, Chapter 644, RSMo, Clean Water Commission regulation 10 CSR 20-7.031(2)(D), the federal Clean Water Act and the Missouri Antidegradation rule, the applicants listed herein have applied for authorization to discharge to waters of the state. The proposed certifications for these activities apparently will not cause the general or numeric criteria to be exceeded nor impair beneficial uses established in Water Quality Standards.

On the basis of preliminary staff review and the application of applicable standards and regulations, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, as administrative agent for the Missouri Clean Water Commission, proposes to issue a certification subject to general or special conditions. The proposed determinations are tentative pending public comment.

Persons wishing to comment on the proposed certification conditions are invited to submit them in writing to the Department of Natural Resources, Water Quality Certification, P.O. Box 176, Jefferson City, MO  65102-0176.  Please include the certification number in all comment letters.  Other relevant information is available for inspection and copying upon request.

Comments should be confined to the issues relating to the proposed action and certification and the effect on water quality. The Department may not consider comments or objections to a certification based on issues outside the authority of the Clean Water Commission, (see Curdt v. Mo. Clean Water Commission, 586 S.W.2d 58 Mo. App. 1979).

All comment deadlines are stated in the individual draft documents. The Department will consider all comments, including emails, faxes and letters before issuing the certification. If the Department receives a large number of public comments, a public meeting or hearing may be held to receive additional comments on the proposed certification.
