INTRODUCTION
This digest is compiled to provide general information to the public as well as  to
Federal, State, and  local  officials.   It contains  excerpts from  the individual
Federal-State water  quality standards  establishing pollutant specific  criteria for
interstate 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 interstate
waters, evaluating adherence  to the  standards, and overseeing enforcement  of
standards compliance, has been mandated by Congress.

Standards, a nationwide strategy for surface water quality management,  contain
three major elements:  the use  (recreation,  drinking  water,  fish and  wildlife
propagation,  industrial,  or agricultural) to be made of  the navigable water;  criteria
to protect these uses; and  an antidegradation statement to protect existing high
quality waters, from degradation by the addition of pollutants.

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),
available from  the Government Printing Office, Washington, D. C.  The 1976 QCW,
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.

This digest summarizes eight elements which  are usually incorporated into  State
Water Quality  Standards.  These are: barium,  beryllium, boron, chlorine,  manga-
nese, nickel, selenium and silver.  The  presence of any of these elements in water
is not unusual because of their wide industrial application.  Many of these elements
also occur in natural waters as  a result of leaching from mineral deposits and
various mining operation.  Toxic effects attributed to  these elements are as varied
as the uses to  which they are applied.   Some are even essential nutrients  in very
minute concentrations.  Nevertheless, EPA has succeeded in demonstrating water
associated environmental problems with these  elements and has recommended the
following ambient water quality criteria to protect aquatic life and human health:

Barium          1 mg/1 for domestic water supply (health)

Beryllium       11 ug/1 for the protection of aquatic life in soft fresh water.*
                1,100 ug/1 for the protection of aquatic life in hard fresh water.*
                100 ug/1 for continuous irrigation on all soils: except
                500 ug/1 for irrigation on neutral to alkaline fine-textured soils.
   * See  Hardness (p.75, QCW,  1976).  The beryllium concentration that will be
     protective of a given aquatic ecosystem can be obtained by conducting flow-
     through  bioassays  using ambient  water  and native  species  of fish  and
     invertebrates.

-------
Boron           750 ug/1 for long term irrigation on sensitive crops.

Chlorine        Total residual chlorine:
                2.0 ug/1 for salmonid fish
                10.0 ug/1 for other freshwater and marine organisms.

Manganese      50 ug/1 for domestic water supplies (welfare).
                100 ug/1 for protection of consumers of marine molluste.

Nickel          0.01 of the 96-hour LC   for freshwater and marine aquatic life.

Selenium        10 ug/1 for domestic water supply (health).
                For marine and freshwater aquatic life, 0.01 of  the 96-hour LC
                as determined through bioassay using a sensitive  resident species.

Silver           50 ug/1 for domestic water supply (health).
                For marine and freshwater aquatic life, 0.01 of  the 96-hour LC
                as determined through bioassay using a sensitive  resident species.
Since water  quality standards experience revisions  and upgrading from time to
time, following procedures set forth in the Clean Water  Act, individual  entries in
this  digest may  be superseded.  As these revisions are accomplished and allowing
for the States to revise their standards accordingly, this digest will be updated and
reissued.  Because this publication is not intended for use other than as  a general
information resource, to obtain the latest information and for special purposes and
applications,  the reader  needs  to refer to  the  current approved water quality
standards.  These can be obtained from the State  water pollution control agencies
or the EPA or Regional Offices.

Individual State-adopted criteria follow:
