PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will hold a public meeting for the Tongue River E. coli Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) project at the Dayton Town Hall Lucille Alley room, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 27, 2017. The purpose of the meeting will be to provide information on the Tongue River E. coli TMDL project. A TMDL is the amount of pollutant a stream can accept and still meet its designated uses, and a TMDL assessment is required when a waterbody is not meeting its assigned designated uses. Multiple streams in the Tongue River watershed exceed the E. coli water quality criteria designed to protect recreational use. The TMDL assessment relied on locally developed plans, reports, and efforts to improve water quality in the creek. The meeting will include a presentation, followed by an opportunity to talk with DEQ and project representatives. 

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, special assistance or alternative formats will be made available, upon request, for individuals with disabilities. For additional assistance, contact Sol Brich, DEQ, (307) 777-7096.
