INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has compiled a list of waterways in Indiana that don’t meet state water quality standards for uses such as fishing, swimming or as drinking water sources.

The public can comment on the list through July 29 at www.watersheds.IN.gov/2347.htm

The department compiles the listing of impaired waterways every two years in accordance with the federal Clean Water Act.

The state uses the list to determine priorities for further study and planning in watershed areas, community involvement and grant funding.
