The need and value of establishing water quality criteria to maintain or restore the suitability of our waters is analyzed. The various uses of water are classified into eight catagories: 1) domestic and municipal; 2) industrial; 3) agricultural; 4) aquacultrual; 5) recreational; 6) aesthetic; 7) navigational and 8) power. Each are briefly discussed, but emphasis is placed on water quality criteria for aquatic life.
