OF THE STATE OF MONTANA
TO: All Concerned Persons
1. On April 15, 2010, the Board of Environmental Review and the Department of Environmental Quality published MAR Notice No. 17-303 regarding a notice of public hearing on the proposed amendment of the above-stated rules at page 818, 2010 Montana Administrative Register, issue number 7. The notice provided for public comment on the rule amendments. In addition, the notice solicited comments on any aspect of Montana's water quality standards that the commentor believes should be considered for potential revision. The board and department are publishing this amended notice to extend the public comment period on both these matters as provided in the next paragraph because a representative of a nongovernmental organization requested additional time to comment.
