Abstract The report is a revision of WATER QUALITY CRITERIA, the 1968 Report of the National Technical Advisory Committee (NTAC) to the Secretary of the Interior. The guidelines for the Academies' Committee were similar to those by the NTAC. The Committee's six Panels were: (1) Recreation and aesthetics; (2) public water supplies; (3) freshwater aquatic life and wildlife; (4) marine aquatic life and wildlife; (5) agricultural uses of water, and (6) industrial water supplies. In the 1972 Report many new subjects are discussed in detail, among them: The recreational impact of boating, levels of use, disease vectors, nuisance organisms, and aquatic vascular plants; viruses in relation to public water supplies; effects of total dissolved gases on aquatic life; guidelines for toxicological research on pesticides and uses of toxicants in fisheries management; disposal of solid wastes in the ocean; use of waste water for irrigation; and industrial water treatment processes and resultant wastes.
