Document Number: 2017-16816
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-08-09
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This notice announces EPA's proposed decision to identify certain water quality limited waters and the associated pollutant to be listed, pursuant to Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 303(d)(2), on New York's list of impaired waters, and requests public comment. Section 303(d)(2) of the CWA and EPA's implementing regulations require States to submit, and EPA to approve or disapprove, lists of waters for which technology-based and other controls are not stringent enough to attain or maintain State water quality standards and for which total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) must be established. States are required to establish a priority ranking for waters on the list and to identify waters targeted for TMDL development over the next two years. New York submitted its 2016 CWA Section 303(d) list (2016 303(d) list) to EPA in correspondence dated December 21, 2016. On July 21, 2017, EPA partially approved and partially disapproved New York's 2016 303(d) list. Specifically, EPA approved New York's 2016 303(d) list with respect to the 792 waterbody/pollutant combinations requiring TMDLs that New York included on its list, the State's priority ranking for these waterbody/pollutant combinations and the waterbody/pollutant combinations targeted for TMDL/Restoration Strategy development in 2017. However, EPA disapproved New York's 2016 303(d) list because EPA determined that it does not include seventy-one waterbody/pollutant combinations that meet CWA Section 303(d) listing requirements. For a detailed explanation of EPA's partial approval/partial disapproval, please refer to EPA's Support Document (https:// www.epa.gov/tmdl/new-york-impaired-waters-list). EPA is providing the public the opportunity to review its proposed decision to add these seventy-one waterbody/pollutant combinations to New York's 2016 303(d) list. EPA will consider public comments before transmitting its final listing decision to the State.
