TITLE OF THE REGULATION:
7403 Regulations Governing the Pollution Control Strategy for the Indian River, Indian River Bay, Rehoboth Bay and Little Assawoman Bay Watersheds, Delaware.
BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF THE SUBJECT, SUBSTANCE AND ISSUES:
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) plans to conduct a public hearing to gather comments on the proposed Pollution Control Strategy for the Inland Bays including the proposed Regulations Governing the Pollution Control Strategy for the Indian River, Indian River Bay, Rehoboth Bay, and Little Assawoman Bay Watersheds. The proposed Strategy includes both voluntary and regulatory actions which need to be implemented in order to achieve the nitrogen and phosphorus load reductions required by the Total Maximum Daily Loads for these watersheds. The proposed regulations would impact multiple sources of nutrients including point sources, stormwater, and onsite wastewater treatment and disposal systems. These regulations replace the previously proposed regulations that appeared in the May 1, 2007 Delaware Register of Regulations.
