Title: ●Federal Recreation Water Quality Criteria Applicable to Certain Waters in New York 

On March 7, 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) disapproved New York's revised water quality criteria for fecal coliform and total coliform (i.e., recreational criteria) as not being protective of the primary contact recreation designated use in certain waters around New York City. The state has not remedied this disapproval and this proposal fulfills EPA’s statutory obligation to prepare and publish proposed regulations setting forth scientifically defensible and protective water quality criteria for these primary contact waters.
