EPA is hosting its first Water Quality Standards Virtual Academy webinar: “Water Quality Standards 101” on October 4, 2012 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm EDT. Water quality standards define the goals for a waterbody by designating its uses, setting criteria to protect those uses, and establishing provisions such as anti-degradation policies to protect water bodies from pollutants. Learn how you can use water quality standards to protect water resources. This webinar is aimed at states, territories, tribes, environmental groups, industrial groups, municipalities, the academic community, federal agencies, watershed groups and any other interested parties.
