Assessing the quality of the Community’s surface water, groundwater, and aquatic ecosystems is a task of ever increasing complexity and importance. The DEQ-WQP regularly compiles available data and conducts analyses to determine whether water quality is sufficient to meet the beneficial uses of the Community’s surface water and groundwater resources. The analyses, findings, and recommendations are placed into water quality assessments documents.


The DEQ-WQP is currently collecting data for a Community-wide comprehensive assessment that will be prepared in 2018.
