Abstract:
The National Water Quality Standards Database (WQSDB), is a single point of access to EPA and state water quality standards (WQS) information. This Web site provides access to several WQS reports that provide information about designated uses, waterbody names, state numeric water quality criteria, and EPA recommended numeric water quality criteria. The WQSDB allows users the ability to compare WQS information across the nation using standard reports.
