Objectives of EMAP-Surface Waters parallel those of the general EMAP program. The objectives of the Surface Waters Component are to: estimate the current status, trends, and changes in selected indicators of condition of the nation's lakes, reservoirs, streams, and rivers on a regional basis with known confidence; estimate the extent (number and surface area of lakes and reservoirs, miles of rivers and streams) of the nation's lakes, reservoirs, streams, and rivers with known confidence; seek associations between selected indicators of natural and anthropogenic stresses and indicators of the condition of ecological sources; and provide annual statistical summaries and periodic assessments on the condition of the nation's lakes, reservoirs, streams, and rivers.
