DRBC currently is compiling data for the 2012 Delaware River and Bay Water Quality Assessment Report required by the federal Clean Water Act (“CWA”). The 2012 Assessment will present the extent to which waters of the Delaware River and Bay are attaining designated uses in accordance with Section 305(b) of the CWA and the Commission's Water Quality Regulations (18 CFR part 410) and will identify impaired waters, which consist of waters that exceed surface water quality standards.
