The Center Facilitates Meeting of Water Quality Experts

Posted Dec, 20, 2010
EPA PAGE IIThis past December, The Center, in partnership with the United States Environmental Protection Agency, facilitated a meeting in Washington, D.C. that brought together water quality experts from around the country. The meeting provided a venue for the state and federal water quality experts to review national watershed restoration measures of progress and alternative measures that have been developed for consideration.

By the end of the two-day session, the EPA-State Incremental Measures Workgroup, which consists of over a dozen states that have been studying watershed restoration measures for the past year, had submitted proposals for the creation of a new measure of progress that could potentially be included in the upcoming National Water Program Guidance, as well as an alteration of a measure that is currently used by the USEPA and state agencies.  

After undergoing a lengthy review process, the updated measures of progress will help the USEPA and its state partners provide a more comprehensive account of the progress being made towards protecting and restoring the nation’s water resources, which will allow the USEPA and the states to administer a more efficient and effective suite of water quality programs.
