It is the public policy of the state of South Dakota to conserve the waters of the state and to protect, maintain, and improve their quality for water supplies, for the propagation of wildlife, fish, and aquatic life, and for domestic, agricultural, industrial, recreational, and other legitimate uses; to prohibit waste discharges into state waters without prior treatment or other corrective action; to provide for the prevention, abatement, and control of new and existing water pollution; and to cooperate with other agencies of the state, agencies of other states, and the federal government in carrying out these objectives.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Water Management Board are authorized to establish water quality standards and enact regulations regarding water pollution. The SD Codified Laws, section 34A-2, contain information on water levels, construction and operation permits for activities expected to discharge waste into water, permit procedures, effluent limitations, underground and above ground storage tanks, and sewage and water treatment facilities. Section 34A-12 of the SDCL address liability issues for the unpermitted release of regulated substances into waters of the state.
