Read the comments on behalf of Potomac Riverkeeper Network and Shenandoah Riverkeeper (“Commenters”) regarding the above-referenced Guidance Manual.
Commenters appreciate the opportunity to provide our perspective on the adequacy and applicability of the manual to assessing persistent pollution problems in the Shenandoah River watershed which continue to negatively affect and impair the public’s ability to recreate in and on the Shenandoah River. We also acknowledge DEQ’s effort to develop an assessment methodology for measuring algal blooms and potential impairment of the Shenandoah River for recreational use. Our comments focus on Appendix I of the draft Guidance.
