The West Virginia Environmental Quality Board has convened a study group to provide assistance and recommendations for developing nutrient criteria for nutrient parameters for inclusion in the Water Quality Standards Rule (46 CSR 1 - Requirements Governing Water Quality Standards).  Beginning in June 2002,  this group was charged with the development of a Nutrient Criteria Plan, that outlined a systematic approach to developing nutrient criteria, for submission to Region 3, USEPA.  Following development of that plan in 2002, the study group known as the WV Nutrient Criteria Committee (NCC) was further charged with development of nutrient criteria in accordance with the timetable and approach outlined in that plan.  

This website (operated by Cacapon Institute) provides hosting of written documents, such as plans, meeting minutes, and proposed criteria prepared by the WV Nutrient Criteria Committee.
