Dear Oklahoma Water Resources Board


Regarding: 785:45-5-5 WQ Standards Variance


Oklahoma Scenic Rivers and Lake Tenkiller must have the very highest water quality protection possible. I ask you to reject the rule allowing a variance to Oklahoma water quality regulations especially for Oklahoma Scenic Rivers.  Designated scenic rivers should not be compromised by allowing a variance to meet pollution limits. Oklahoma’s phosphorus limit for scenic rivers must be enforced without further delay. It must not be weakened for any length of time, for any reason or for any private, corporate or municipal entity.


Sincerely,



Address:
