Last week, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) held a
webinar on the Definition of Waters of the State. Mike, Kristyn and Katharina were
able to sit in on the stakeholders meeting via teleconference, and learned how this
single definition of Waters of the State identifies the most important question in
the storm water compliance world. Environmental regulations associated
with storm water and storm water sampling rest on this definition,
regardless of the state, or where the water runs. Compliance with this
subject is easier in some states and harder in others.
