|Utah DWQ Releases Draft Water Quality Study for Jordan River|
On January 3, 2012, the Utah Division of Water Quality (DWQ) released for public comment the first part of a draft water quality study on the impact of low dissolved oxygen levels in the lower Jordan River.
The first phase of the study focuses on low oxygen levels, and the second phase will identify the causes of the low dissolved oxygen which will lead to an implementation strategy to restore the river. The complete TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load) study will establish the threshold on the daily dose of pollutants for the river.
An open house will be held from 4-6pm Tuesday, Feb 21 in the DEQ's Board Room 1015 at the Multi Agency State Office Building, 195 North 1950 West.
The comment period will run from January 3, 2012 through March 31, 2012. The draft study is available at http://www.waterquality.utah.gov/TMDL/JORDAN/index.htm
