BWSR is currently in the WCA rulemaking process. The process was initiated in 2015, but for various reasons has been delayed from the original plan. Coordination and engagement with other agencies and technical advisors is ongoing. Official public and stakeholder coordination will be prefaced by the issuance of an updated plan and new notice and comment periods.

The following plan and comments received are from the original notice in 2015. This site will be updated when the new notice is issued.
