The Section 208 areawide planning and management program for solving water pollution problems is perhaps the most comprehensive program that the Congress has established to bring about environmental quality. This program ties together the various federal water pollution abatement requirements (including municipal, industrial, residual waste, runoff, and ground water pollution abatement) and places the responsibility for planning and implementing these provisions with regional and local agencies. While it is not possible for EPA to provide answers to all the water quality problems that 208 programs should resolve, these guidelines describe the overall factors which should be taken into account and provide a framework for designated 208 planning agencies to use in developing their plans and implementation programs.
