Amendments to the Water Quality Regulations, Water Code and Comprehensive Plan To Classify the Lower Delaware River as Special Protection Waters
By Resolution No. 2008-9 on July 16, 2008, the Delaware River Basin Commission (``Commission'' or DRBC) approved amendments to its Water Quality Regulations, Water Code and Comprehensive Plan to establish numeric values for existing water quality for the reach of the main stem Delaware River known as the ``Lower Delaware'' and to assign the Special Protection Waters (SPW) classification ``Significant Resource Waters'' (SRW) on a permanent basis to this reach. The Commission also approved language to clarify aspects of the SPW regulations, especially with respect to existing facilities, that have confused some DRBC docket holders and applicants since the SPW program was originally adopted by the Commission in 1992 for point sources and in 1994 for non-point sources.
