    Executive Summary
    The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is submitting this annual Toxics Reduction in State Waters (TRISW) Report to the Governor and the Chairs of the House Agriculture, Chesapeake and Natural Resources Committee and the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources Committee pursuant to Virginia Code 62.1-44.17:3.

    The primary objective of the TRISW Report is to document the Commonwealth’s progress toward reducing toxics in state waters and improving water quality. This commitment includes three principal types of activities: (1) the prevention of contamination of the Commonwealth’s waters by toxics, (2) the continued monitoring of those waters for the presence of toxics and (3) the implementation of remedial measures to reduce and/or eliminate toxics found in the Commonwealth’s waters.
