Abstract
The water quality standards program surveys standards for the first nationwide strategy for water quality management. It contains four major elements: the use (recreation, drinking water, fish and wildlife propagation, industrial, or agricultural) to be made of the interstate water; criteria to protect those uses; implementation plans (for needed industrial-municipal waste treatment improvements) and enforcement plans; and an antidegradation statement to protect existing high quality waters. Disinfection is employed to protect public water supplies, primary- and secondary-body-contact recreational waters, shellfisheries and agricultural waters for domestic animals.
