South Dakota Ag Connection - 02/23/2024

The South Dakota Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources (DANR) is reaching out to the public for comments on the upcoming 2024 Integrated Report for Surface Water Quality Assessment.

This report, a requirement under the Clean Water Act, plays a crucial role in identifying waterbodies in need of help across the state. Secretary Hunter Roberts emphasizes the importance of public feedback in shaping the state's water quality initiatives.

The report not only assesses the condition of South Dakota's surface waters but also outlines the state's water quality monitoring efforts, pinpoints pollutants, and marks waters for pollution management plans. It's a key document for setting pollution limits to ensure water quality standards are met.

Comments are welcome through March 4, 2024, either online or by written mail to Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources Watershed Protection Program 523 East Capitol Avenue – Joe Foss Building Pierre, South Dakota 57501-3181.

For those interested in contributing to South Dakota's water quality future, detailed instructions for submitting comments and accessing the draft report are available on the DANR’s website.

This is your chance to be part of a vital environmental effort, helping to safeguard South Dakota's water resources for years to come.
