The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking nominations from the public to identify streams, rivers, and lakes for water-quality monitoring. The DEQ seeks citizen nominations every year, a result of a Virginia General Assembly mandate in the 1997 Water Quality Monitoring, Information, and Restoration Act (WQMIRA). Nominations received by the last business day of April will be considered for inclusion in monitoring that starts in January of the following year. Nominations for calendar year 2017 are now being accepted until April 29, 2016.
