Ecology is proposing to update fresh and marine water quality standards in Chapter 173-201A WAC, Water Quality Standards for Surface Waters of the State of Washington for the protection of water contact recreational uses in state waters. The update to the rule will:
• Include new bacterial indicators of fecal contamination and associated numeric criteria to protect water contact recreational uses in sections 200(2) and 210(3).
• Review current water contact recreational use categories and modify sections 600 and 610 if necessary.
