DRBC currently is compiling data for the 2014 Delaware River and Bay Water Quality Assessment Report ("2014 Assessment") required by the federal Clean Water Act ("CWA"). The 2014 Assessment will present the extent to which waters of the Delaware River and Bay are attaining designated uses in accordance with Section 305(b) of the CWA and the Commission's Water Quality Regulations, 18 CFR Part 410, and will identify impaired waters, which consist of waters in which surface water quality standards are not being met.
