Draft Water Quality Guidelines

The B.C. Ministry of Environment is committed to public review of draft Water Quality Guidelines prior to their final approval.

To facilitate your input, we maintain an electronic e-mail distribution list to advise potentially interested parties that a new draft guideline has been posted and is open for public comment. If you wish to be added to the notification list, please contact Angeline Tillmanns, PhD (aquatic life, wildlife & agriculture guidelines) or Heather Thompson (human health guidelines) with your e-mail address. There is no obligation to review any document if you are on the notification list.

Generally, written feedback is requested within a 30-day period. The review period may be extended if notice is received prior to the end of the review period.

Please note: All public review comments received on draft water quality guidelines will be posted on this website and made available to all interested parties. All submissions must include the reviewer’s name and affiliation (if any).
