Introduction

This digest was compiled to provide general information to the public as well as
to Federal, State, and local officials.  It contains excerpts from the individual
State-Federal water quality standards establishing pollutant specific criteria for
navigable surface waters.  The water quality standards  program is implemented
by the U.S.  Environmental Protection Agency where responsibility for providing
water quality recommendations, approving State-adopted standards for navigable
waters, evaluating adherence to the standards, and overseeing enforcement of
standards compliance, has been mandated by Congress.

The  standards  program,  a  nationwide strategy  for   surface  water  quality
management, contains two major elements:  the use (recreation, drinking water,
fish  and  wildlife propagation,  industrial, or  agricultural)  to  be made of  the
navigable water; and criteria to protect these uses.

Water  quality  criteria  (numerical or  narrative specifications  for  physical,
chemical, temperature, and  biological constituents) are stated  in the July 1976
U.S. Environmental Protection  Agency  publication Quality Criteria for  Water
(QCW),  order  #  055-001-01049-4,  price $3.50, available from  the Government
Printing Office, Washington, D.  C.  The  1976 CQW, commonly referred to as the
"Red Book," is the most current compilation of scientific information used by the
Agency as a basis  for  assessing water  quality.  This publication is subject to
periodic   updating  and  revisions  in  light  of  new  scientific  and  technical
information.

State Water Quality  Standards contain a "four free froms"  statement, in which
one of the "free froms" specifically refers to toxic substances.  This statement is
essentially a comprehensive narrative standard.   It is  designed to  protect any
stream use from detrimental toxic effects  of unknown substances.  The 1976
Quality Criteria  for Water recommendation  for this provision, which can be one
of several general provisions in State water quality standards, is:

     All  waters  must  be  kept   free  from  substances attributable  to
     wastewaters or  other  discharges that injure or are toxic  or produce
     adverse physiological responses in humans, animals  or plants.

Since  water  quality  standards are  revised  from time  to  time,  following
procedures set forth in the Clean Water Act, individual entries in this digest  may
be superseded.  This digest will be updated periodically.  Because this publication
is intended for  use only as a general information reference,  the reader needs to
refer to  the  current approved  water  quality standards to obtain the  latest
information for special purposes and applications.  These can be obtained from
the State  wat.ir pollution control agencies or the EPA Regional Offices.

Toxic Substances Narrative

Toxic  substances  shall  be  kept  below
levels  which  are deleterious  to  human,
animal,  plant  or   aquatic  life,  or  in
amounts sufficient  to interfere with  the
beneficial use of the  water.   As  a mini-
mum evaluation for the presence of toxic
substances, a water shall be evaluated by
use of a 96-hour bioassay, guided  by  the
docum ent  Standard   Methods for   the
Examination  of  Water and  Wastewater.
The survival of  the test organisms shall
not be  less than that in controls which
utilize appropriate experimental water.

Toxic materials attributable to municipal,
industrial,  agricultural,  or  other waste
discharges, shall not be present in receiv-
ing waters  in  such quanitities as to  be
toxic to human, animal, plant or aquatic
life or to interfere with the normal propa-
gation of aquatic life. For any toxicants,
concentrations   in  the receiving  waters
after mixing shall not exceed 0.01 of the
96-hour TL  , unless they can be shown to

                 Failure  to determine  presence of  toxic
                 substances by this  method shall not pre-
                 clude determination of excessive levels on
                 the basis of other criteria or methods.

                 In order  to provide maximum  protection
                 for the  propagation of fish and wildlife,
                 concentrations of toxic substances  shall
                 not  exceed levels  calculated  by multi-
                 plying the application factors by the 96-
                 hour  LC50 values  determined using the
                 receiving  water in  question and the most
                 sensitive  species   of   aquatic  organism
                 affected.

                 When the  concentration based on the 96-
                 hour  LC50  data exceeds  the maximum
                 numerical  limits,  the  numerical  limits
                 shall constitute the  criteria.

                 The   application  factors and  maximum
                 numerical  limits are  derived  from the
                 NAS-NAE 1972 Report  of the Committee
                 on Water Quality Criteria.

                 Shall not  contain substances in concen-
                 trations or combinations which are  toxic
                 or  which  produce undesirable   physio-
                 logical responses in human, fish or  other
                 animal life,  and plants.  When  two or
                 more toxic materials are present at the
                 same time, the  chronic effect  of such
                 combinations shall  be taken into account
                 and   the  applicable  standard  shall  be
                 determined by bioassay or other approved
                 method.
