Clean Water Act 2008

Purpose

In 2008, the Department of Natural Resources focused staff time and resources on migrating its assessment datasets from stand-alone excel workbooks to the WATERS database. Due to this effort, the DNR did not write up a narrative Water Quality Report to Congress. In 2008, the department delisted a number of waters from its imipaired waters list. http://dnr.wi.gov/water/impairedSearch.aspx?priority=delisted_2008

2008 Impaired Waters List
US EPA full approval of the 2008 Impaired Waters List.
This is the EPA partial approval of the 2008 Impaired Waters List. The failure to list Musky Bay was the basis for the partial approval decision. This decision was later revised to full approval based on EPA's subsequent determination that a lack of sufficient information exists to support the listing of Musky Bay.
