Protecting Public Health and the Environment.
Watershed advisory groups (WAGs) are groups of interested citizens that provide local public input and guidance to DEQ during the development of water quality improvement plans or "Total Maximum Daily Loads" (TMDLs) for water bodies that fail to meet water quality standards. TMDLs are designed to reduce the levels of pollutants, such as bacteria and sediment, in impaired water bodies.
The North Fork Coeur d'Alene River WAG and DEQ are planning and implementing water quality improvement projects to achieve targets set by existing TMDLs for sediment and metals in the subbasin. Additionally, TMDLs addressing temperature and metals are under development for waterbodies in the subbasin that do not fully support beneficial uses.
Note: Content on this page is provided for informational purposes as the WAG and DEQ develop and implement water quality plans for the North Fork Coeur d'Alene River watershed. All review documents are considered draft and are subject to change. The goal of providing these documents at WAG meetings and on this web page is to ensure citizens an opportunity to provide input as the documents are developed.
