The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released the draft national water program guidance for Fiscal Year 2014. The guidance describes how EPA, states, territories and tribal governments will work together to protect and improve the quality of the nation's waters, and focuses on five priorities: protecting populations at risk; improving the integrity of the nation's drinking water and clean water quality; providing safe and sustainable water resources and infrastructure; controlling nutrient pollution; and assuring high quality and accessible water information. Accompanying these priorities are strategies that describe key actions needed to accomplish the public health and environmental goals of Protecting America's Waters as part of EPA's Strategic Plan.
The draft guidance is available for public comment until May 9, 2013.
