SD DENR Seeks Comments by March 19
The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is seeking public comments on the draft Integrated Report. Required under the federal Clean Water Act, this report is used by the State to identify impaired waterbodies in South Dakota. The draft Integrated Report also includes the National 303(d) Program Vision.
“Because this list drives State water quality programs, it is important that people in South Dakota see the draft report and provide us comments before it is finalized and sent to EPA for approval,” said DENR Secretary Steve Pirner.
Public comments from the general public and interested parties and organizations will be accepted through March 19. Comments can be submitted online at DENR’s One-Stop Public Notice page, emailed to Paul Lorenzen, or submitted in writing to:
Department of Environment and Natural Resources Surface Water Quality Program
