The purpose of these guidelines is to assist the States in setting up a management program and institutional arrangements to integrate water quality and other resource management decisions. The central purpose of this management program is the development and implementation of State Water Quality Management Plans so that the longer range goals of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 can be met. To achieve these goals, it will be necessary to develop a water quality management process at the State and local level that assures continuous planning for and implementation of pollution control measures. These guidelines present a suggested framework for developing water quality management plans.
