Public Hearings on Water Quality Standards

Pre-registration is now open for the public hearings on EPA’s proposed water quality standards for Florida’s lakes and flowing waters. EPA strongly encourages you to pre-register for a hearing, as we expect a large number of participants. Everyone who attends will have the opportunity to speak, however those who have preregistered will be able to speak first. Preregistration will close on April 8, 2010.

To register for the hearings, please go to: and click on “Preregister for a hearing”.

If you or someone you know cannot register online, preregistration is available by phone at 202-431-2282.
