EPA Proposes Changes to Water Quality Standards Regulations
Washington--The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed changes to regulations related to federal water quality standards

If implemented, the changes could have implications for agriculture and economic growth generally. The standards define water quality goals for water bodies by designating uses, establishing criteria based on sound science that protect those uses and establishing anti-degradation requirements that prevent deterioration of existing water quality. 
AFBF is developing comments on the proposal.
