The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released its proposed decision on Missouri’s 2012 list of impaired waters. The agency requests public comments on its proposed decision to restore a total of 10 water bodies and corresponding pollutants to the list that the Missouri Department of Natural Resources submitted for EPA review and approval. The Clean Water Act and federal regulations require EPA to review the state’s list to determine if the state reasonably considered existing and readily available water quality-related data and information. EPA is proposing to restore several water bodies that were excluded from the list. These proposed additions include waters found to be impaired by sediment, bacteria, ammonia, and other pollutants. EPA will accept comments on its proposed changes to Missouri’s list until September 12, 2012.
