Water Resource and Designated Uses

Before determining the water quality problem and source of the water quality problem, it is necessary to first determine the water resource you are trying to protect and how that water resource is used. Although you may be trying to protect more than one water resource use, you can select only one at a time. Select the surface water resource and designated use of concern. If there is more than one designated use,please rerun WATERSHEDSS for that designated use.
