Description of Subjects/Issues Water quality standards in the Gunnison and Lower Dolores River Basins
Purpose/Objective of Rule These regulations establish classifications and numeric standards for the Gunnison River/Lower Dolores River Basins, including all tributaries and standing bodies of water. This includes all or parts of Gunnison, Delta, Montrose, Ouray, Mesa, Saguache and Hinsdale Counties. This also includes the lower Dolores River and its tributaries in Dolores, Montrose, Mesa and San Miguel Counties. The classifications identify the actual beneficial uses of the water. The numeric standards are assigned to determine the allowable concentrations of various parameters. Discharge permits will be issued by the Water Quality Control Division to comply with basic, narrative, and numeric standards and control regulations so that all discharges to waters of the state protect the classified uses. (See Regulation No. 31, section 31.14). It is intended that these and all other stream classifications and numeric standards be used in conjunction with and be an integral part of Regulation No.31 Basic Standards and Methodologies for Surface Water.
