The Department of Environmental Quality is proposing to amend La. Admin. Code tit. 33, §1123 regarding water quality standards. Changes would revise dissolved oxygen criteria for inland waters in the eastern Lower Mississippi River Alluvial Plains Ecoregion to reflect natural conditions that keep some waters from reaching the criteria. A public hearing will be held July 29, 2015, and the deadline for comment is August 5, 2015. See http://www.doa.louisiana.gov/osr/reg/1506/1506.pdf (pp. 1125-30).
