Description The Water Quality Program Permit Management Section has planned from the beginning to evaluate the implementation of the state’s regulation on Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET). The WET regulation was adopted in October 1993, and we have managed to capture into a database most of the WET tests conducted to meet its requirements. We have also been very active in evaluating the performance of WET tests and have developed a detailed review process for the WET test results. A critical evaluation of the regulatory program involving WET testing seemed possible and desirable in our effort to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the state’s regulatory programs.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
