Water Quality Rulemaking

Executive Order 10 (EO10) signed by the Governor on January 10, 2023, requires all state agencies to identify which administrative rule chapters will be retained or rescinded. The EO10 process for both the review of existing rule chapters and the reauthorization of rule chapters that will be retained includes public engagement with the opportunity for meaningful input throughout the process. Opportunities for public input and information for public review during the Water Quality Bureau's implementation of EO10 will be posted on this webpage as they become available.

Current Activities and Upcoming Opportunities

Water Quality staff continue to review current water quality rules and develop proposed changes to implement EO10. Please stay tuned for upcoming stakeholder input opportunities and availability of materials for review, including a Water Quality Rule Review Tracking Sheet.
