Standards of Quality for Waters of the State

Notice of Proposed Rule


DAR File No.: 42691
Filed: 03/15/2018 10:30:32 AM


Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:

This rule is being changed to correct errors, eliminate requirements that are unnecessary, address comments and recommendations received during the Triennial Reviews of the Water Quality Standards, and comply with Federal requirements.

Summary of the rule or change:

In Sections R317-2-3.3 and R317-2-11, the public notice and comment periods were extended to provide the public more time to review and comment on sometimes complicated proposals. In Section R317-2-3.5, the requirement that permitted discharges to Class 1C (potable water) waters always conduct a Level II antidegradation review is proposed to be deleted. Level II antidegradation reviews are still required for permitted discharges to Class 1C waters for new permits and for any increases in concentration or effluent loads for existing permits because of previous revisions to these rules. In Section R317-2-13, the recreation uses for Mill Creek in Grand County and Utah Lake in Utah County are proposed to be changed from infrequent primary and secondary contact recreation to frequent primary and secondary contact recreation (Class 2A) because people commonly swim in these waters. This change was requested by the local watershed group and endorsed by the federal land management agency. Descriptions of the waters with site-specific criteria in Section R317-2-14 were added to Section R317-2-13 with an asterisk identifying the affected use. These were added for the convenience of the users. This is a nonsubstantive change because no uses or criteria are revised. The Class 1C drinking water use is added to Grove and Battle Creeks in Utah County at the request of American Fork City. The affected waters are used as a source for drinking water. The aquatic life use is changed from Class 3D (waterfowl, shorebirds and their food chain) to Class 3A (cold water species of game fish, other cold water aquatic life and their food chain) based on an investigation of aquatic life present. In Table 2.14.1, deletion of the temperature-dependent criterion for fluoride for the Class 1C potable water use is proposed to be replaced with the current USEPA drinking water maximum contaminant level. The criteria for several pollutants are proposed to be moved from Table 2.14.6 to Table 2.14.1. The criteria in Table 2.14.6 are human health criteria and these pollutants do not have current USEPA human health criteria but do have USEPA maximum contaminant levels. In Table 2.14.2, the cadmium criteria for aquatic life use Classes 3A-3D are updated. The revised criteria are more stringent for the acute and less stringent for the chronic criterion when compared to the existing Utah criteria. New criteria for carbaryl, a carbamate pesticide, are proposed. Utah does not currently have any numeric criteria for carbaryl. In footnotes for Table 2.14.1, the site-specific total dissolved solids criterion for Quitchupah Creek is revised to include tributaries that were inadvertently omitted when the standard was promulgated. The water quality in one of the tributaries was misidentified as being impaired because of the omission. The site-specific total dissolved solids criterion for the Sevier River from Gunnison Bend Reservoir to Clear Lake: 3,370 mg/l is corrected to Crafts Lake because Clear Lake is not on the Sevier River. In Table 2.14.2, corrections were made to the table values for the chronic ammonia criteria, fish early life stages absent, and the acute silver criteria. The table values are based on equations in the water quality standards are unchanged. In Table 2.14.6, the human health criteria were reviewed and updated as required by federal regulations. Most of the pollutants listed in this table are affected. Some pollutants and criteria are proposed to be moved to Table 2.14.1. Pollutants listed that do not have current USEPA-recommended human health criteria or existing Utah criteria are proposed to be deleted. Criteria with available updated USEPA human health criteria are updated. The new criteria, and most of the updated criteria, are more stringent than the existing criteria; but, some are less stringent. Informational footnotes were added to Tables 2.14.1 and 2.14.2 to alert the user that criteria in Table 2.14.6 also apply to the uses in these tables (nonsubstantive change).

Statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:

  • Title 19, Chapter 5
  • 40 CFR Part 131
  • 33 U.S.C. 1251
  • 33 U.S.C. 1311-1317
  • 33 U.S.C. 1329

Anticipated cost or savings to:

the state budget:

For impacts that were estimable, aggregate fiscal cost savings over the next three years for the state will be $29,480. The Utah Division of Water Quality is the only constrained party for the proposed public participation revisions in Sections R317-2-3 and R317-2-11 and both the direct and indirect fiscal impacts will be neutral because the changes only extend the time required for the public comment period. The indirect fiscal impacts for other state agencies will be neutral because the length of the comment and review period should not affect the costs if these agencies choose to comment. The indirect non-fiscal impacts will inestimably be positive because the additional time provided will either have no impact or a beneficial impact by providing additional time for review and comment. The proposed revisions to Section R317-2-3 will result in indirect positive recurring fiscal impacts to the Utah Division of Water Quality because the 26 existing UPDES permits that discharge to Class 1C waters will no longer have to submit redundant Level II antidegradation reviews every 5 years at permit renewal. These reviews are estimated to require 4 hours of staff time at $90/hour for each review resulting in an annual average savings of $1,872 for the first 3 years evaluated or $9,360 over 5 years. The proposed revisions will result in direct positive fiscal impacts to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources by avoiding the need to submit a Level II antidegradation review every 5 years at permit renewal. The cost impacts are estimated to be an annual savings of $288 over the first 3 years based on an estimated 16 hours of staff time at $90/hour or $1,440 every 5 years. The proposed changes to Section R317-2-13 will have one-time and potentially recurring indirect fiscal costs to the Utah Division of Water Quality. The one-time costs will be to update the use classifications in various internal systems. The one-time indirect fiscal impacts will be $1,400 assuming 4 hours to update each of the 4 databases at $90/hour. The proposed change in Section R317-2-13 for Mill Creek from infrequent primary and secondary contact recreation to frequent primary and secondary contact recreation will not have direct recurring fiscal or non-fiscal impacts to the Utah Division of Water Quality because the water quality support status will be unchanged. The change in use in Section R317-2-13 for Utah Lake may cause recurring indirect fiscal impacts that are inestimable. Based on the currently available data, the water quality of Utah Lake may or may not be categorized as impaired during the next or future assessment cycles which would trigger a TMDL (total maximum daily load) investigation which would have recurring indirect fiscal impacts. These impacts are unknown because the impairment and potential sources of the impairment cannot currently be identified. The proposed addition of the Class 1C potable water use in Section R317-2-13 to Battle and Grove Creeks will have inestimable indirect non-fiscal benefits for the Division of Drinking Water because they supported the change to protect these creeks as drinking water sources. The proposed changes in Section R317-2-14 will have one-time indirect fiscal impacts to the Utah Division of Water Quality. These one-time impacts will be to update the use classifications in various internal systems. The one-time indirect fiscal impact will be $2,800 assuming 8 hours to update each of the 4 databases at $90/hour. The proposed change for the Quitchupah Creek site-specific total dissolved solids criterion in Table 2.14.1 will have recurring indirect fiscal benefits to the Utah Division of Water Quality. With the change, the Division will avoid the need for follow-up sampling and analyses to investigate a tributary to Quitchupah Creek that was inadvertently omitted from the previously promulgated site-specific total dissolved solids standard. Fiscal benefits will be $10,000/yr based on 80 hours of staff time at $90/hour and $2,800 in direct costs for transportation lodging and laboratory analyses.

local governments:

For impacts that were estimable, aggregate fiscal cost savings over the next three years for local governments will be $12,672. The indirect fiscal impacts for local governments of the proposed public participation revisions in Sections R317-2-3 and R317-2-11 will be neutral because the length of the comment and review period should not affect the costs if they choose to comment. The indirect non-fiscal impacts with be inestimably positive because the additional time provided will either have no impact or a beneficial impact by providing additional time for review and comment. The proposed revisions to Section R317-2-3.5 will result in direct cost savings by avoiding the need to submit a Level II antidegradation review every 5 years at permit renewal for 11 Utah Pollution Discharge Elimination System permits. The impacts will be an annual savings of $384 per permit for 11 permits based on an estimated 16 hours of staff time at $120/hour every 5 years. The annual savings is $4,224 each year or $12,672 for 3 years and $21,120 over 5 years. For the City of American Fork, Indirect inestimable non-fiscal savings are anticipated for the use changes to Grove and Battle Creeks because American Fork City requested the change and the changes will assist in protecting their potable water source. The proposed revisions to Table 2.14.6 are neutral because to no local government currently has limits for these pollutants and this status is not expected to change. The proposed revision to Table 2.14.2 to change to less stringent chronic cadmium criteria may have indirect positive impacts to Park City but these impacts are inestimable. Cadmium concentrations will still require treatment under the new criteria but the cost of treatment may decrease. Park City is not currently meeting the cadmium treatment requirements because of economic hardship and the change in criteria will not affect treatment requirements over the next three years.

small businesses:

For impacts that were estimable, aggregate fiscal cost savings over the next 3 years for small businesses will be $3,456. For the proposed public participation revisions, small businesses are not constrained parties. The indirect fiscal impacts for small businesses will be neutral because the length of the comment and review period should not affect the costs if they choose to comment. The indirect non-fiscal impacts with be inestimably positive because the additional time provided will either have no impact or a beneficial impact by providing additional time for review and comment. The proposed revisions to Section R315-2-3.5 will result in direct positive fiscal impacts by avoiding the need to submit a Level II antidegradation review every 5 years at permit renewal for 3 permittees. The savings will be $1,920 384 per permit based on an estimated 16 hours of staff time at $120/hour every 5 years. Over 5 years, the 3 permittees will save $5,760 or $1,152 annually and $3,456 over 3 years. For the proposed revisions to Grove, Battle, and Mill Creeks in Section R317-2-13, no small businesses will be impacted because no discharge permits are issued for these waters. For the proposed classification change for Utah Lake in Section R317-2-13, the fiscal impacts to eight publicly-owned treatment plant permittees will be neutral because the discharge requirements will not be affected because the discharges are already meeting the new numeric criteria associated with the proposed change in use. Indirect non-fiscal impacts are possible for the three livestock operators identified in the Utah Department of Workforce Services Firm Find but these impacts are inestimable. For any impacts to occur, the water quality of Utah Lake would have to be impaired for E. coli under the changed use but not the existing use designation, a future total maximum daily load would have to conclude that these specific agricultural sources are a significant contributor to the impairment, and the owners would have to elect to voluntarily implement best management practices to address these sources. The proposed changes to Section R317-2-14 result in more stringent criteria for benzene, benzo(a)pyrene, and some phenols which are limited to one discharge permit. The proposed changes have the potential to result in indirect negative fiscal impacts but the potential and magnitude are inestimable. A waste load allocation needs to be evaluated to determine if and how much permit limits for these pollutants will change. Resulting changes to the permit limits may require different or additional water treatment but absent an engineering study, the impacts and associated costs are inestimable.

persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:

For impacts that were estimable, aggregate fiscal cost savings over the next 3 years for these persons will be $1,152. For the proposed public participation revisions, these persons are not constrained parties. Indirect fiscal impacts for these persons will be neutral because the length of the comment and review period will not affect the costs if they choose to comment. The indirect non-fiscal impacts with be inestimably positive because the additional time provided will either have no impact or a beneficial impact by providing additional time for review and comment. The proposed revisions to Section R317-2-3 will result in direct positive fiscal impacts by avoiding the need to submit a Level II antidegradation review every 5 years at permit renewal for Capitol Reef National Park. The impacts will be an annual savings of $384 based on an estimated 16 hours of staff time at $120/hour every 5 years. The savings over 3 years will be $1,152 and $1,920 over 5 years. The proposed revisions to Section R317-2-14 may result in inestimable indirect cost to other persons that discharge wastewater to publicly-owned treatment works. These persons may be subject to additional pretreatment requirements imposed by the treatment works or the Division of Water Quality to ensure that the treatment works comply with their permit limits. The potential indirect costs are inestimable because no readily available data regarding the specific pollutants or current or potential future pretreatment limits are available.

Compliance costs for affected persons:

No additional compliance costs for affected persons.

Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:

The fiscal impacts of these proposed revisions will result in modest cost savings for businesses.

Appendix 2: Regulatory Impacts

For impacts that were estimable, aggregate fiscal cost savings over the next three years for non-small businesses will be $2,304.


The proposed revisions to the public participation requirements will result in inestimable positive non-fiscal impacts because the additional time provided will either have no impact or a beneficial impact by providing additional time for review and comment.


The changes to the antidegradation review requirements in Section R317-2-3 will result in direct positive fiscal impacts by avoiding the need to submit a Level II antidegradation review every 5 years at permit renewal for 2 permits. The impacts will be an annual savings of $384 per permit per year based on an estimated 16 hours of staff time at $120/hour every 5 years. Net annual savings are $768, $2,304 over 3 years and $3804 over 5 years.


No constrained parties were identified that would be affected by the proposed revisions to Section R317-2-13.


The proposed revisions to Section R317-2-14 may have direct and indirect fiscal impacts that are inestimable for two permittees. One of the discharges is currently inactive but the permit does include effluent limits that could be affected by the proposed revisions to Table 2.14.6. The fiscal impacts are inestimable because current effluent data are unavailable. The other discharge permit currently has a monitoring limit for cadmium but the savings of the proposed change are inestimable until cadmium effluent concentrations are assessed at permit renewal. The revisions may result in inestimable indirect cost to non-small businesses that discharge wastewater to publically owned treatment works. These businesses may be subject to additional pretreatment requirements imposed by the treatment works or the Division of Water Quality to ensure that the treatment works comply with their permit limits. The potential indirect costs are inestimable because no readily available data regarding the specific pollutants or current or potential future pretreatment limits are available.


The head of the Department of Environmental Quality, Alan Matheson, has reviewed and approved this fiscal analysis.



R317. Environmental Quality, Water Quality.

R317-2. Standards of Quality for Waters of the State.

R317-2-1A. Statement of Intent.

Whereas the pollution of the waters of this state constitute a menace to public health and welfare, creates public nuisances, is harmful to wildlife, fish and aquatic life, and impairs domestic, agricultural, industrial, recreational and other legitimate beneficial uses of water, and whereas such pollution is contrary to the best interests of the state and its policy for the conservation of the water resources of the state, it is hereby declared to be the public policy of this state to conserve the waters of the state and to protect, maintain and improve the quality thereof for public water supplies, for the propagation of wildlife, fish and aquatic life, and for domestic, agricultural, industrial, recreational and other legitimate beneficial uses; to provide that no waste be discharged into any waters of the state without first being given the degree of treatment necessary to protect the legitimate beneficial uses of such waters; to provide for the prevention, abatement and control of new or existing water pollution; to place first in priority those control measures directed toward elimination of pollution which creates hazards to the public health; to insure due consideration of financial problems imposed on water polluters through pursuit of these objectives; and to cooperate with other agencies of the state, agencies of other states and the federal government in carrying out these objectives.


R317-2-1B. Authority.

These standards are promulgated pursuant to Sections 19-5-104 and 19-5-110.


R317-2-1C. Triennial Review.

The water quality standards shall be reviewed and updated, if necessary, at least once every three years. The Director will seek input through a cooperative process from stakeholders representing state and federal agencies, various interest groups, and the public to develop a preliminary draft of changes. Proposed changes will be presented to the Water Quality Board for information. Informal public meetings may be held to present preliminary proposed changes to the public for comments and suggestions. Final proposed changes will be presented to the Water Quality Board for approval and authorization to initiate formal rulemaking. Public hearings will be held to solicit formal comments from the public. The Director will incorporate appropriate changes and return to the Water Quality Board to petition for formal adoption of the proposed changes following the requirements of the Utah Rulemaking Act, Title 63G, Chapter 3.


R317-2-2. Scope.

These standards shall apply to all waters of the state and shall be assigned to specific waters through the classification procedures prescribed by Sections 19-5-104(5) and 19-5-110 and R317-2-6.


R317-2-3. Antidegradation Policy.

3.1 Maintenance of Water Quality

Waters whose existing quality is better than the established standards for the designated uses will be maintained at high quality unless it is determined by the Director, after appropriate intergovernmental coordination and public participation in concert with the Utah continuing planning process, allowing lower water quality is necessary to accommodate important economic or social development in the area in which the waters are located. However, existing instream water uses shall be maintained and protected. No water quality degradation is allowable which would interfere with or become injurious to existing instream water uses.

In those cases where potential water quality impairment associated with a thermal discharge is involved, the antidegradation policy and implementing method shall be consistent with Section 316 of the Federal Clean Water Act.

3.2 Category 1 Waters

Waters which have been determined by the Board to be of exceptional recreational or ecological significance or have been determined to be a State or National resource requiring protection, shall be maintained at existing high quality through designation, by the Board after public hearing, as Category 1 Waters. New point source discharges of wastewater, treated or otherwise, are prohibited in such segments after the effective date of designation. Protection of such segments from pathogens in diffuse, underground sources is covered in R317-5 and R317-7 and the rules for Individual Wastewater Disposal Systems (R317-501 through R317-515). Other diffuse sources (nonpoint sources) of wastes shall be controlled to the extent feasible through implementation of best management practices or regulatory programs.

Discharges may be allowed where pollution will be temporary and limited after consideration of the factors in R317-2-3.5.b.4., and where best management practices will be employed to minimize pollution effects.

Waters of the state designated as Category 1 Waters are listed in R317-2-12.1.

3.3 Category 2 Waters

Category 2 Waters are designated surface water segments which are treated as Category 1 Waters except that a point source discharge may be permitted provided that the discharge does not degrade existing water quality. Discharges may be allowed where pollution will be temporary and limited after consideration of the factors in R317-2-.3.5.b.4., and where best management practices will be employed to minimize pollution effects. Waters of the state designated as Category 2 Waters are listed in R317-2-12.2.

3.4 Category 3 Waters

For all other waters of the state, point source discharges are allowed and degradation may occur, pursuant to the conditions and review procedures outlined in Section 3.5.

3.5 Antidegradation Review (ADR)

An antidegradation review will determine whether the proposed activity complies with the applicable antidegradation requirements for receiving waters that may be affected.

An antidegradation review (ADR) may consist of two parts or levels. A Level I review is conducted to insure that existing uses will be maintained and protected.

Both Level I and Level II reviews will be conducted on a parameter-by-parameter basis. A decision to move to a Level II review for one parameter does not require a Level II review for other parameters. Discussion of parameters of concern is those expected to be affected by the proposed activity.

Antidegradation reviews shall include opportunities for public participation, as described in Section 3.5e.

a. Activities Subject to Antidegradation Review (ADR)

1. For all State waters, antidegradation reviews will be conducted for proposed federally regulated activities, such as those under Clean Water Act Sections 401 (FERC and other Federal actions), 402 (UPDES permits), and 404 (Army Corps of Engineers permits). The Director may conduct an ADR on any projects with the potential for major impact on the quality of waters of the state. The review will determine whether the proposed activity complies with the applicable antidegradation requirements for the particular receiving waters that may be affected.

2. For Category 1 Waters and Category 2 Waters, reviews shall be consistent with the requirement established in Sections 3.2 and 3.3, respectively.

3. For Category 3 Waters, reviews shall be consistent with the requirements established in this section

b. An Anti-degradation Level II review is not required where any of the following conditions apply:

1. Water quality will not be lowered by the proposed activity or for existing permitted facilities, water quality will not be further lowered by the proposed activity, examples include situations where:

(a) the proposed concentration-based effluent limit is less than or equal to the ambient concentration in the receiving water during critical conditions; or

(b) a UPDES permit is being renewed and the proposed effluent concentration and loading limits are equal to or less than the concentration and loading limits in the previous permit; or

(c) a UPDES permit is being renewed and new effluent limits are to be added to the permit, but the new effluent limits are based on maintaining or improving upon effluent concentrations and loads that have been observed, including variability; or

2. Assimilative capacity (based upon concentration) is not available or has previously been allocated, as indicated by water quality monitoring or modeling information. This includes situations where:

(a) the water body is included on the current 303(d) list for the parameter of concern; or

(b) existing water quality for the parameter of concern does not satisfy applicable numeric or narrative water quality criteria; or

(c) discharge limits are established in an approved TMDL that is consistent with the current water quality standards for the receiving water (i.e., where TMDLs are established, and changes in effluent limits that are consistent with the existing load allocation would not trigger an antidegradation review).

Under conditions (a) or (b) the effluent limit in an UPDES permit may be equal to the water quality numeric criterion for the parameter of concern.

3. Water quality impacts will be temporary and related only to sediment or turbidity and fish spawning will not be impaired,

4. The water quality effects of the proposed activity are expected to be temporary and limited. As general guidance, CWA Section 402 general discharge permits, CWA Section 404 general permits, or activities of short duration, will be deemed to have a temporary and limited effect on water quality where there is a reasonable factual basis to support such a conclusion. Factors to be considered in determining whether water quality effects will be temporary and limited may include the following:

(a) Length of time during which water quality will be lowered.

(b) Percent change in ambient concentrations of pollutants of concern

(c) Pollutants affected

(d) Likelihood for long-term water quality benefits to the segment (e.g., dredging of contaminated sediments)

(e) Potential for any residual long-term influences on existing uses.

(f) Impairment of the fish spawning, survival and development of aquatic fauna excluding fish removal efforts.

c. Anti-degradation Review Process

For all activities requiring a Level II review, the Division will notify affected agencies and the public with regards to the requested proposed activity and discussions with stakeholders may be held. In the case of Section 402 discharge permits, if it is determined that a discharge will be allowed, the Director will develop any needed UPDES permits for public notice following the normal permit issuance process.

The ADR will cover the following requirements or determinations:

1. Will all Statutory and regulatory requirements be met?

The Director will review to determine that there will be achieved all statutory and regulatory requirements for all new and existing point sources and all required cost-effective and reasonable best management practices for nonpoint source control in the area of the discharge. If point sources exist in the area that have not achieved all statutory and regulatory requirements, the Director will consider whether schedules of compliance or other plans have been established when evaluating whether compliance has been assured. Generally, the "area of the discharge" will be determined based on the parameters of concern associated with the proposed activity and the portion of the receiving water that would be affected.

2. Are there any reasonable less-degrading alternatives?

There will be an evaluation of whether there are any reasonable non-degrading or less degrading alternatives for the proposed activity. This question will be addressed by the Division based on information provided by the project proponent. Control alternatives for a proposed activity will be evaluated in an effort to avoid or minimize degradation of the receiving water. Alternatives to be considered, evaluated, and implemented to the extent feasible, could include pollutant trading, water conservation, water recycling and reuse, land application, total containment, etc.

For proposed UPDES permitted discharges, the following list of alternatives should be considered, evaluated and implemented to the extent feasible:

(a) innovative or alternative treatment options

(b) more effective treatment options or higher treatment levels

(c) connection to other wastewater treatment facilities

(d) process changes or product or raw material substitution

(e) seasonal or controlled discharge options to minimize discharging during critical water quality periods

(f) pollutant trading

(g) water conservation

(h) water recycle and reuse

(i) alternative discharge locations or alternative receiving waters

(j) land application

(k) total containment

(l) improved operation and maintenance of existing treatment systems

(m) other appropriate alternatives

An option more costly than the cheapest alternative may have to be implemented if a substantial benefit to the stream can be realized. Alternatives would generally be considered feasible where costs are no more than 20% higher than the cost of the discharging alternative, and (for POTWs) where the projected per connection service fees are not greater than 1.4% of MAGHI (median adjusted gross household income), the current affordability criterion now being used by the Water Quality Board in the wastewater revolving loan program. Alternatives within these cost ranges should be carefully considered by the discharger. Where State financing is appropriate, a financial assistance package may be influenced by this evaluation, i.e., a less polluting alternative may receive a more favorable funding arrangement in order to make it a more financially attractive alternative.

It must also be recognized in relationship to evaluating options that would avoid or reduce discharges to the stream, that in some situations it may be more beneficial to leave the water in the stream for instream flow purposes than to remove the discharge to the stream.

3. Does the proposed activity have economic and social importance?

Although it is recognized that any activity resulting in a discharge to surface waters will have positive and negative aspects, information must be submitted by the applicant that any discharge or increased discharge will be of economic or social importance in the area.

The factors addressed in such a demonstration may include, but are not limited to, the following:

(a) employment (i.e., increasing, maintaining, or avoiding a reduction in employment);

(b) increased production;

(c) improved community tax base;

(d) housing;

(e) correction of an environmental or public health problem; and

(f) other information that may be necessary to determine the social and economic importance of the proposed surface water discharge.

4. The applicant may submit a proposal to mitigate any adverse environmental effects of the proposed activity (e.g., instream habitat improvement, bank stabilization). Such mitigation plans should describe the proposed mitigation measures and the costs of such mitigation. Mitigation plans will not have any effect on effluent limits or conditions included in a permit (except possibly where a previously completed mitigation project has resulted in an improvement in background water quality that affects a water quality-based limit). Such mitigation plans will be developed and implemented by the applicant as a means to further minimize the environmental effects of the proposed activity and to increase its socio-economic importance. An effective mitigation plan may, in some cases, allow the Director to authorize proposed activities that would otherwise not be authorized.

5. Will water quality standards be violated by the discharge?

Proposed activities that will affect the quality of waters of the state will be allowed only where the proposed activity will not violate water quality standards.

6. Will existing uses be maintained and protected?

Proposed activities can only be allowed if "existing uses" will be maintained and protected. No UPDES permit will be allowed which will permit numeric water quality standards to be exceeded in a receiving water outside the mixing zone. In the case of nonpoint pollution sources, the non-regulatory Section 319 program now in place will address these sources through application of best management practices to ensure that numeric water quality standards are not exceeded.

7. If a situation is found where there is an existing use which is a higher use (i.e., more stringent protection requirements) than that current designated use, the Director will apply the water quality standards and anti-degradation policy to protect the existing use. Narrative criteria may be used as a basis to protect existing uses for parameters where numeric criteria have not been adopted. Procedures to change the stream use designation to recognize the existing use as the designated use would be initiated.

d. Special Procedures for Drinking Water Sources

[An Antidegradation Level II Review will be required by the Director for discharges to waters with a Class 1C drinking water use assigned.

] Depending upon the locations of the discharge and its proximity to downstream drinking water diversions, additional treatment or more stringent effluent limits or additional monitoring, beyond that which may otherwise be required to meet minimum technology standards or in stream water quality standards, may be required by the Director in order to adequately protect public health and the environment. Such additional treatment may include additional disinfection, suspended solids removal to make the disinfection process more effective, removal of any specific contaminants for which drinking water maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) exists, and/or nutrient removal to reduce the organic content of raw water used as a source for domestic water systems.

Additional monitoring may include analyses for viruses, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, other pathogenic organisms, and/or any contaminant for which drinking water MCLs exist. Depending on the results of such monitoring, more stringent treatment may then be required.

The additional treatment/effluent limits/monitoring which may be required will be determined by the Director after consultation with the Division of Drinking Water and the downstream drinking water users.

e. Public Notice

The public will be provided notice and an opportunity to comment on the conclusions of all completed antidegradation reviews. When possible, public notice on the antidegradation review conclusions will be combined with the public notice on the proposed permitting or certifying action. In the case of UPDES permits, public notice will be provided through the normal permitting process, as all draft permits are public noticed for 30 days, and public comment solicited, before being issued as a final permit. The Statement of Basis for the draft UPDES permit will contain information on how the ADR was addressed including results of the Level I and Level II reviews. In the case of Section 404 permits from the Corps of Engineers, the Division of Water Quality will develop any needed 401 Certifications and the public notice may be published in conjunction with the US Corps of Engineers public notice procedures. Other permits requiring a Level II review will receive a separate public notice according to the normal State public notice procedures. The public will be provided notice and an opportunity to comment whenever substantive changes are made to the implementation procedures referenced in Subsection R317-2-3.5.f.

f. Implementation Procedures

The Director shall establish reasonable protocols and guidelines (1) for completing technical, social, and economic need demonstrations, (2) for review and determination of adequacy of Level II ADRs and (3) for determination of additional treatment requirements. Protocols and guidelines will consider federal guidance and will include input from local governments, the regulated community, and the general public. The Director will inform the Water Quality Board of any protocols or guidelines that are developed.


R317-2-4. Colorado River Salinity Standards.

In addition to quality protection afforded by these rules to waters of the Colorado River and its tributaries, such waters shall be protected also by requirements of "Proposed Water Quality Standards for Salinity including Numeric Criteria and Plan of Implementation for Salinity Control, Colorado River System, June 1975" and a supplement dated August 26, 1975, entitled "Supplement, including Modifications to Proposed Water Quality Standards for Salinity including Numeric Criteria and Plan of Implementation for Salinity Control, Colorado River System, June 1975", as approved by the seven Colorado River Basin States and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as updated by the 1978 Revision and the 1981, 1984, 1987, 1990, 1993, 1996, 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, and 2011 reviews of the above documents.


R317-2-5. Mixing Zones.

A mixing zone is a limited portion of a body of water, contiguous to a discharge, where dilution is in progress but has not yet resulted in concentrations which will meet certain standards for all pollutants. At no time, however, shall concentrations within the mixing zone be allowed which are acutely lethal as determined by bioassay or other approved procedure. Mixing zones may be delineated for the purpose of guiding sample collection procedures and to determine permitted effluent limits. The size of the chronic mixing zone in rivers and streams shall not to exceed 2500 feet and the size of an acute mixing zone shall not exceed 50% of stream width nor have a residency time of greater than 15 minutes. Streams with a flow equal to or less than twice the flow of a point source discharge may be considered to be totally mixed. The size of the chronic mixing zone in lakes and reservoirs shall not exceed 200 feet and the size of an acute mixing zone shall not exceed 35 feet. Domestic wastewater effluents discharged to mixing zones shall meet effluent requirements specified in R317-1-3.

5.1 Individual Mixing Zones. Individual mixing zones may be further limited or disallowed in consideration of the following factors in the area affected by the discharge:

a. Bioaccumulation in fish tissues or wildlife,

b. Biologically important areas such as fish spawning/nursery areas or segments with occurrences of federally listed threatened or endangered species,

c. Potential human exposure to pollutants resulting from drinking water or recreational activities,

d. Attraction of aquatic life to the effluent plume, where toxicity to the aquatic life is occurring.

e. Toxicity of the substance discharged,

f. Zone of passage for migrating fish or other species (including access to tributaries), or

g. Accumulative effects of multiple discharges and mixing zones.

R317-2-7. Water Quality Standards.

7.1 Application of Standards

a. The numeric criteria listed in R317-2-14 shall apply to each of the classes assigned to waters of the State as specified in R317-2-6. It shall be unlawful and a violation of these rules for any person to discharge or place any wastes or other substances in such manner as may interfere with designated uses protected by assigned classes or to cause any of the applicable standards to be violated, except as provided in R317-1-3.1.

b. At a minimum, assessment of the beneficial use support for waters of the state will be conducted biennially and available for a 30-day period of public comment and review. Monitoring locations and target indicators of water quality standards shall be prioritized and published yearly. For water quality assessment purposes, up to 10 percent of the representative samples may exceed the minimum or maximum criteria for dissolved oxygen, pH, E. coli, total dissolved solids, and temperature, including situations where such criteria have been adopted on a site-specific basis.

c. Site-specific standards may be adopted by rulemaking where biomonitoring data, bioassays, or other scientific analyses indicate that the statewide criterion is over or under protective of the designated uses or where natural or un-alterable conditions or other factors as defined in 40 CFR 131.10(g) prevent the attainment of the statewide criteria as prescribed in Subsections R317-2-7.2, and R317-2-7.3, and Section R317-2-14.

7.2 Narrative Standards

It shall be unlawful, and a violation of these rules, for any person to discharge or place any waste or other substance in such a way as will be or may become offensive such as unnatural deposits, floating debris, oil, scum or other nuisances such as color, odor or taste; or cause conditions which produce undesirable aquatic life or which produce objectionable tastes in edible aquatic organisms; or result in concentrations or combinations of substances which produce undesirable physiological responses in desirable resident fish, or other desirable aquatic life, or undesirable human health effects, as determined by bioassay or other tests performed in accordance with standard procedures; or determined by biological assessments in Subsection R317-2-7.3.

7.3 Biological Water Quality Assessment and Criteria

Waters of the State shall be free from human-induced stressors which will degrade the beneficial uses as prescribed by the biological assessment processes and biological criteria set forth below:

a. Quantitative biological assessments may be used to assess whether the purposes and designated uses identified in R317-2-6 are supported.

b. The results of the quantitative biological assessments may be used for purposes of water quality assessment, including, but not limited to, those assessments required by 303(d) and 305(b) of the federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1313(d) and 1315(b)).

c. Quantitative biological assessments shall use documented methods that have been subject to technical review and produce consistent, objective and repeatable results that account for methodological uncertainty and natural environmental variability.

d. If biological assessments reveal a biologically degraded water body, specific pollutants responsible for the degradation will not be formally published (i.e., Biennial Integrated Report, TMDL) until a thorough evaluation of potential causes, including nonchemical stressors (e.g., habitat degradation or hydrological modification or criteria described in 40 CFR 131.10 (g)(1 - 6) as defined by the Use Attainability Analysis process), has been conducted.


R317-2-8. Protection of Downstream Uses.

All actions to control waste discharges under these rules shall be modified as necessary to protect downstream designated uses.


R317-2-9. Intermittent Waters.

Failure of a stream to meet water quality standards when stream flow is either unusually high or less than the 7-day, 10-year minimum flow shall not be cause for action against persons discharging wastes which meet both the requirements of R317-1 and the requirements of applicable permits.


R317-2-10. Laboratory and Field Analyses.

10.1 Laboratory Analyses

All laboratory examinations of samples collected to determine compliance with these regulations shall be performed in accordance with standard procedures as approved by the Director by the Utah Office of State Health Laboratory or by a laboratory certified by the Utah Department of Health.

10.2 Field Analyses

All field analyses to determine compliance with these rules shall be conducted in accordance with standard procedures specified by the Utah Division of Water Quality.


R317-2-11. Public Participation.

Public notices and public hearings will be held for the consideration, adoption, or amendment of the classifications of waters and standards of purity and quality. Public notices shall be published at least twice in a newspaper of general circulation in the area affected at least 30 days prior to any public hearing. The notice will be posted on a State public notice website at least 45 days before any hearing and a notice will be mailed at least 30 days before any hearing to the chief executive of each political subdivision and other potentially affected persons.[to review all proposed revisions of water quality standards, designations and classifications, and public meetings may be held for consideration of discharge requirements set to protect water uses under assigned classifications.]

information where these pollution indicator levels are exceeded.
    (6)  Total Phosphorus as P (mg/l) indicator for
lakes and reservoirs shall be 0.025.
    (7) Where the criteria are exceeded and there is a reasonable
basis for concluding that the indicator bacteria E. coli are
primarily from natural sources (wildlife), e.g., in National
Wildlife Refuges and State Waterfowl Management Areas, the
criteria may be considered attained provided the density
attributable to non-wildlife sources is less than the criteria.
Exceedences of E. coli from nonhuman nonpoint sources will
generally be addressed through appropriate Federal, State, and
local nonpoint source programs.
    Measurement of E. coli using the "Quanti-Tray 2000" procedure
is approved as a field analysis. Other EPA approved methods may
also be used.

representative samples may exceed the 668 per 100 ml criterion
(for 1C and 2B waters) and 409 per 100 ml (for 2A waters). For
small datasets, where exceedences of these criteria are
observed, follow-up ambient monitoring should be conducted to
better characterize water quality.

public.  The Director will inform the Water
Quality Board of any protocols or guidelines that are developed.
    (3) Site Specific Standards for Temperature
Ken[']s Lake: From June 1st - September 20th, 27 degrees C.
    (4)  Where criteria are listed as 4-day average and
1-hour average concentrations, these concentrations should not
be exceeded more often than once every three years on the
    (5)  The dissolved metals method involves filtration of
the sample in the field, acidification of the sample in the
field, no digestion process in the laboratory, and analysis by
EPA approved laboratory methods for the required
detection levels.
    (6)  The criterion for aluminum will be implemented as
    Where the pH is equal to or greater than 7.0 and the
hardness is equal to or greater than 50 ppm as CaC03 in the
receiving water after mixing, the 87 ug/1 chronic criterion
(expressed as total recoverable) will not apply, and aluminum
will be regulated based on compliance with the 750 ug/1 acute
aluminum criterion (expressed as total recoverable).
    (7)  Hardness dependent criteria.  100 mg/l used.
Conversion factors for ratio of total recoverable metals to
dissolved metals must also be applied.   In waters with a
hardness greater than 400 mg/l as CaC03, calculations will
assume a hardness of 400 mg/l as CaC03.  See Table 2.14.3 for
complete equations for hardness and conversion factors.
    (8)  [Reserved]See also numeric criteria for organism only in
Table 2.14.6.
    (9)  The following equations are used to calculate Ammonia
criteria concentrations:
    (9a)  The thirty-day average concentration of total ammonia
nitrogen (in mg/l as N) does not exceed, more than once every
three years on the average, the chronic criterion calculated
using the following equations.
    Fish Early Life Stages are Present:
    mg/l as N (Chronic) = ((0.0577/(1+10 7.688-pH)) + (2.487/(1+
10 pH-7.688))) * MIN (2.85, 1.45*10 0.028*(25-T))
    Fish Early Life Stages are Absent:
    mg/1 as N (Chronic) = ((0.0577/(1+10 7.688-pH)) + (2.487/
(1+10 pH-7.688))) * 1.45*10 0.028*  (25-MAX(T,7)))
    (9b) The one-hour average concentration of total ammonia
nitrogen (in mg/l as N) does not exceed, more than once every
three years on the average the acute criterion calculated
using the following equations.
    Class 3A:
    mg/l as N (Acute) = (0.275/(1+10 7.204-pH)) + (39.0/1+10 pH-7.204))
    Class 3B, 3C, 3D:
    mg/l as N (Acute) = 0.411/(1+10 7.204-pH)) + (58.4/(1+10 pH-7.204))
    In addition, the highest four-day average within the 30-day
period should not exceed 2.5 times the chronic criterion.
The "Fish Early Life Stages are Present" 30-day average total
ammonia criterion will be applied by default unless it is
determined by the Director, on a site-specific basis, that it
is appropriate to apply the "Fish Early Life Stages are
Absent" 30-day average criterion for all or some portion of
the year.  At a minimum, the "Fish Early Life Stages are
Present" criterion will apply from the beginning of spawning
through the end of the early life stages.  Early life stages
include the pre-hatch embryonic stage, the post-hatch free
embryo or yolk-sac fry stage, and the larval stage for the
species of fish expected to occur at the site.  The Director
will consult with the Division of Wildlife Resources in making
such determinations.  The Division will maintain information
regarding the waterbodies and time periods where application
of the "Early Life Stages are Absent" criterion is determined
to be appropriate.
    (10)  Investigation should be conducted to develop more
information where these levels are exceeded.
    (11)  pH dependent criteria.  pH 7.8 used in table.  See
Table 2.14.4 for equation.
    (12)  Total Phosphorus as P (mg/l) as a pollution indicator
for lakes and reservoirs shall be 0.025.
    (13)  Reserved
    (14)  The selenium water quality standard of 12.5 (mg/kg dry
weight) for Gilbert Bay is a tissue based standard using the
complete egg/embryo of aquatic dependent birds using Gilbert Bay
based upon a minimum of five samples over the nesting season.
Assessment procedures are incorporated as a part of this
standard as follows:

Egg Concentration Triggers: DWQ Responses

Below 5.0 mg/kg: Routine monitoring with sufficient intensity
to determine if selenium concentrations within the Great Salt
Lake ecosystem are increasing.

5.0 mg/kg: Increased monitoring to address data gaps,
loadings, and areas of uncertainty identified from initial Great
Salt Lake selenium studies.

6.4 mg/kg: Initiation of a Level II Antidegradation review by the
State for all discharge permit renewals or new discharge permits
to Great Salt Lake. The Level II Antidegradation review may
include an analysis of loading reductions.

9.8 mg/kg: Initiation of preliminary TMDL studies to evaluate
selenium loading sources.

12.5 mg/kg and above: Declare impairment. Formalize and
implement TMDL.

Level II Review procedures associated with this standard are
referenced at R317-2-3.5.C.
