Southeastern members of MS River Collaborative meet with EPA

September 1st, 2009 by Dana Wright

Last week TCWN, along with our Southeastern partner states in the MS River Collaborative (KY and MS) met with Region 4 EPA in Atlanta to talk about a variety of water quality issues facing our region and individual states.  Topics included nutrient criteria, anti-degradation procedures, public involvement, toxic pollutant limits, permits, and some other random items.  I must say, I’ve been to quite a few of these meetings and they typically result in little.  However, this meeting seemed slightly better.  EPA staff appeared more receptive to our questions and concerns and a list of “action items” was developed.  Next steps are always questionable, but let’s keep our fingers crossed some headway has been made into some of the most pressing water quality issues facing our states!
