Water Quality Standards

Water quality standards are a key tool used by States to meet this goal and are a fundamental component of watershed management. Water quality standards are the foundation for numerous activities conducted by Georgia EPD including development of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), issuance of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits and assessment of State waters as part of the 305(b)/303(d) listing process.
