CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- State regulators are compiling lake and stream water quality data for a report required by the Clean Water Act.
The Department of Environmental Protection submits the report to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency every two years. It includes a list of impaired waters that don't meet water quality standards.
The DEP says the Division of Water and Waste Management is collecting data for the 2014 report.
The report also will include data collected by other state agencies, federal agencies, watershed associations, permitted facilities and others.
Anyone who has collected water quality data in West Virginia from July 1, 2008, through June 30 can submit it to the DEP. Oct. 18 is the deadline to submit data.
Data submission forms can be downloaded from the DEP's website.
