Nevada Water Quality
Nevada Division of Environmental Protection is responsible for conducting monitoring, assessment, reporting under CWA Sections 303(d) and 305(b), and TMDL development for the State of Nevada. More information about Nevada's programs can be found at Nevada's Division of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Water Quality Planning page or through EPA and Nevada staff.
Nevada's Integrated Report
On February 1, 2013, EPA partially approved and partially disapproved Nevada’s 2008-2010 303(d) list of waters requiring a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL). EPA approved waters Nevada identified as requiring a TMDL, and disapproved the omission of 19 waters EPA determined to be impaired due to mercury in fish tissue. EPA’s action added the 19 identified water body – pollutant combinations.
Following a public comment period on EPA’s notice to add waters, on April 18, 2013, EPA transmitted to the state the final list of added water body – pollutant combinations and a responsiveness summary addressing how public comments were considered in the final EPA decision. Provided below are the February 2013 partial approval / partial disapproval letter and the April 2013 letter and enclosure presenting the final list of added waters and responsiveness summary (see EPA documents). The State’s 303(d) lists are available at the link under State Documents, below.
