Section 304(a)(1) of the Clean Water Act requires EPA to develop and periodically revise criteria for water quality accurately reflecting the latest scientific knowledge. In 1980, EPA published ambient water quality criteria (AWQC) for 64 pollutants/pollutant classes and provided a methodology for deriving the criteria. The 1980 AWQC National Guidelines for developing human health AWQC addressed three types of endpoints: noncancer, cancer and organoleptic (taste and odor) effects. Criteria values for the protection against noncancer and cancer effects were estimated by using risk assessment-based procedures, including extrapolation from animal toxicity or human epidemiological studies.
