The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) petitioned the Water Quality Control Commission (WQCC) at its July 8, 2014 regular public meeting to conduct the triennial review of New Mexico’s Water Quality Standards, 20.6.4 NMAC. A review of the Standards on a three-year basis is required by Section 303(c) of the federal Clean Water Act (CWA). Along with the petition, NMED presented its proposed amendments and narrative explanation.

The deadline for all parties to file notices of intent to present technical testimony is Friday,December 12, 2014. The hearing is currently scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 14, 2015.
