DEEP: Water Quality Reclassification

Water Quality Reclassification
 
 
All the waters, both surface waters and ground waters, of the state are currently assigned a classification. In accordance with section 22a-426(f) of the Connecticut General Statutes, a person may request a change in the surface or ground water quality classifications. Such reclassifications are considered on a case by case basis and must be consistent with the standards and criteria established by the Connecticut Water Quality Standards.
 

Ground Water Reclassifications

Applications for changes to ground water classifications are due March 30 of each year. The procedure is set out in section 22a-426(f) of the Connecticut General Statutes and the criteria for consideration are set out in Section 22a-426-7(k)(2) of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies.
