The Hawai’i State Department of Health, Clean Water Branch (CWB) has uploaded the video recording of the virtual public hearing from the 2022 triennial review of state water quality standards.

State water quality standards (WQS) provide the regulatory basis for protecting, assessing, and restoring water bodies in Hawaii. CWB is required to review state WQS at least once every three years.

CWB completed the last triennial review of state WQS in March 2019. For 2022, CWB performed a review and proposed actions for thirteen areas of state WQS. On March 30, 2022, CWB held a virtual public hearing to receive oral comments from the public about the proposed actions.

No oral comments were submitted at the virtual public hearing. A total of five written comments were submitted during the public comment period from February 11 to March 30, 2022.
