Revised Water Quality Standards

The Fond du Lac Environmental Program is providing public notice of the availability for review of the Fond du Lac Band’s draft revised water quality standards. The Fond du Lac Band is required under the Clean Water Act to periodically review and propose changes, if necessary or appropriate, to our federally approved water quality standards, and to provide opportunities for public input. These draft revised standards can be viewed below, along with supporting documentation for the proposed changes. Hard copies are available at the Fond du Lac Tribal Center, FDL Resource Management and Tribal Court, the Cloquet, Sawyer, and Brookston Community Centers, and the Cloquet Public Library.

Comments on the draft revised water quality standards will be accepted through November 19, 2018 via mail or email at the addresses below.

A public hearing will be scheduled for mid-November, providing opportunity to ask questions and provide oral comments. Notification of date, time, and location of the public hearing will be provided through the Fond du Lac website.
