Two public meetings were held to summarize the information and to provide a forum for interested parties to ask questions and provide comments. One meeting was held on Wednesday, June 20th at the Senior Citizen’s Center in Cuba, and another meeting was held on Thursday, June 21st at the County Courthouse in Grants.

All comments and SWQB responses were incorporated into a final draft version which was approved by the Water Quality Control Commission (WQCC) at their Tuesday, August 14th, 2007 meeting.  The US EPA reviewed and approved the subsequent draft version of the TMDL without further changes on September 21st, 2007.

The full 145-page document with its 6 appendices is now available as either on master file (2.8 MB) or 19 individual interlinked Adobe® Acrobat® chapters for more-convenient downloading:
