Dear Mr. Klotz:
On August 16, 2012, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency partially approved and partiallydisapproved the New York State 2012 Clean Water Act Section 303(d) List of Impaired Waters
Requiring a Total Maximum Daily Load. On September 6, 2012, the EPA published a notice in
the Federal Register (Federal Register, Vol. 77, No. 173, pp. 54909-54910) announcing the
partial approval/partial disapproval of New York's 2012 303(d) List and opening a publiccomment period on the EPA's proposed addition of the Lower Esopus Creek to New York's2012 303(d) List. After considering all submissions and in accordance with the Clean Water Act
and EPA regulations and guidance, the EPA has concluded that current and available informationindicate that New York State's narrative water quality standard for turbidity is exceeded in theLower Esopus Creek and that 303(d) listing for this portion of the creek is therefore necessary.The EPA is now taking final action to add the lower portion of the Esopus Creek (New York
State Waterbody ID Numbers 1307-0003 and 1307-0010) to New York's 2012 303(d) List. Foradditional details on the EPA's rationale for this listing, please see the enclosed Response
Summary, which addresses comments submitted by New York State Department ofEnvironmental Conservation and other stakeholders.
Sincerely,
Jef Gratz, Deputy Director
Clean Water Division
