Abstract States are showing increasing interest in developing biological criteria as part of their water quality programs. Some have already instituted biological criteria to support their State standards. To encourage adoption of biological criteria throughout the country, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is providing both program and technical guidance for the development and implementation of State programs. This document presents the most recent review of biological criteria development in each of the 50 States (plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands). A total of 31 State biomonitoring organizations are actively involved in the research, development, or implementation of biological criteria. This document includes five case studies on States with the most active biological criteria programs--Ohio, Maine, North Carolina, Florida, and Arkansas--and seven case summaries on States with substantial experience in biological criteria--Texas, Connecticut, Vermont, New York, Nebraska, Delaware, and Minnesota.
