On Monday, August 23, 2010, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality released Virginia’s 2010 Water Quality Assessment Report, and its findings appear to be just as murky as the James River.

As with many things in life, there’s the good news, and the bad news. The good news is that more than 430 waters have been removed from the impaired waters list because they now fully meet water quality standards. And an additional 600 waters have been removed for a least one impairment. The bad news – DEQ added about 1,400 miles of streams and rivers, and 2,500 acres of lakes to the impaired waters list.

Please see full article below for more information.
