A conceptual approach for developing water quality criteria for eutrophication management is suggested. The three basic components of the framework include source ambient relationships, effects, and impact analyses. The approach focuses on a conceptual method for developing decision-making criteria as opposed to the classical water quality criteria of a single value of limitation. The approach to developing water quality criteria for eutrophication management provides an analysis framework of response relationships which can be readily incorporated into water quality standard-setting processes that include environmental considerations and technological and economic factors.
