Projects and reports

Regional projects and reports that are developed and implemented collaboratively are listed below.

Regional Monitoring and Assessment Report (RMAR)

The RMAR aims to assess water quality conditions within receiving waters in each watershed and to make recommendations for confirming or updating focused and highest priority water quality conditions so that they may be properly addressed in each Water Quality Improvement Plan (WQIP).

This year is the first year of RMAR implementation and the Report will become available on Project Clean Water when finalized.

Report of Waste Discharge (ROWD)

The ROWD serves as an application for issuance of a new waste discharge permit.
