This report develops and recommends prioritized listings of chemical, physical, and biological parameters which can be used to assess the environmental impact of oil shale development on surface water resources. Each of the potential water-related problems is addressed in the context of the probable cumulative regional impact of a maturing, commercial oil shale industry and in terms of local impact resulting from the prototype operation initially planned on leased public lands. The possible effects of potential pollutants on ambient water quality and the resulting impact on aquatic life, public water supplies, livestock, irrigation agriculture, and selected industries are evaluated.
