The Water Quality Control Division is conducting a stakeholder process in 2021 to consider comments on the draft proposal of changes to Regulation 84, and to collect feedback on considerations for alternative processes to authorize new uses under Regulation 84. The draft proposal was developed in response to the stakeholder process conducted in 2020 regarding the improvement of Regulation 84 for efficiency, readability, and implementation. The first stakeholder meeting was held on May 6, 2021, to discuss comments on the draft proposed changes and concluded on July 27, 2021. To view the meeting materials, visit this public folder.
