SCS/SB 664 - This act modifies the authority of the Clean Water Commission so that it may only revise water quality standards upon completion of an assessment by the Department of Natural Resources finding that there is an environmental need for such revision. In implementing revised water quality standards modifications of 25% or more, the Department of Natural Resources shall also conduct an evaluation as set forth in this act. The Department shall use these evaluations in making site-specific permit decisions.

This act is similar to HCS/HB 1074 (2014).
