Description of Subjects/Issues Proposed revisions to water quality classifications and standards throughout the Rio Grande Basin resulting from triennial review process.
Purpose/Objective of Rule These regulations establish classifications and numeric standards for the Rio Grande Basin, including all tributaries and standing bodies of water as indicated in section 36.6. 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.
