2021 406 Plan

Section 406 of WQA’s enabling act requires the WQA to develop and adopt a basinwide groundwater quality management and remediation plan.  The plan includes a characterization of the contamination, a comprehensive cleanup plan, a summary of financing available, a description of public outreach efforts and a discussion about the authorities of other agencies the WQA interacts with to facilitate the basin cleanup effort.  Each year staff updates the §406 Plan and posts the final plan after the Board adopts it.
