This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The purpose of Virginia's proposed 303(d) list is to identify waters in the Commonwealth of Virginia for which Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) under CWA Section 303(d) need to be developed. The proposed report identifies waters as impaired if they do not support, or only partially support, one or more of five designated uses (i.e., aquatic life, fish consumption, shellfish consumption, swimming, and drinking water). Support of the designated uses is based on attainment of Virginia's water quality standards, which include numeric and narrative criteria. Attainment is determined by the assessment of all available monitoring data and water quality information.
