The activity of water users can impact the temperature of our rivers (e.g., taking water out and putting it back in at a different temperature). When rivers get too hot or too cold, fish and other aquatic life can die. Based on information and input from WRA and its partners, the Water Quality Control Commission rejected proposed changes that would have weakened standards for water temperatures statewide.  Avoiding the changes benefits fish, anglers, and local recreation economies across the state.
