North Fork Payette River Watershed Advisory Group (WAG)

WAGs provide local public input and guidance to DEQ during the development of water quality improvement plans or TMDLs for water bodies that fail to meet water quality standards. TMDLs are designed to reduce the levels of pollutants, such as bacteria and sediment, in impaired water bodies.

The North Fork Payette River WAG was formed in 2014. The North Fork Payette River Subbasin Assessment and Total Maximum Daily Load was developed, submitted to EPA for review, and subsequently approved by EPA in August 2005. A 5-year review was completed in February 2012.
