The purpose of this document is to provide answers to four questions: (1) what is the current water quality situation; (2) why does the situation exist; (3) what has been the trend in recent years; and (4) what will the water quality be in years to come. In so doing, identification is made of significant water bodies that, in 1973, met the 1983 goal of water quality adequate for swimming and for the protection and propagation of fish and wildlife and water bodies that might achieve the 1983 goal by 1977, 1983 or some later date.
