Critical Water Quality Study Stalled at the E.P.A. and by States

Oklahoma groups advocating protection of Oklahoma Scenic Rivers are pushing E.P.A. to complete a very critical water quality study for the Illinois River.  The study, Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) , would set pollution limits for cities and farms.  The study is stalled at E.P.A. even though it is required by the federal Clean Water Act.

Read the letter groups wrote in 2017 to officials asking for completeion of the TMDL for the Illinois River (PDF).
