The Clean Water Act requires EPA to develop criteria for ambient water quality that accurately reflect the latest scientific knowledge on the impacts of pollutants on human health and the environment. Background Information on Water Quality Criteria.

Current Water Quality Criteria Tables. Aquatic Life Criteria Table. Human Health Criteria Table. Human Health For the protection of human health from the toxic properties of cyanide ingested through water and through contaminated aquatic organisms, the ambient water quality criterion is.

The procedures described in the "Guidelines for Deriving Numerical National Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Aquatic Organisms and Their Uses" indicate that, except possibly where a locally important species is very sensitive, saltwater aquatic organisms and their uses should not be affected unacceptably if the one-hoar average concentration of cyanide does not exceed ^Jg/L more than.

The USEPA’s ambient water quality criteria (AWQC) for cyanide were developed in (USEPA a). Since then, concerns have arisen that the AWQC for cyanide have been problematic to implement and may not accurately reflect either the toxic forms or bioavailable concentrations of cyanide in water, sediments, and tissues of aquatic organisms.

The U.S. EPA’s current ambient water quality criteria (AWQC) for cyanide were developed in However, since new scientific information on cyanide toxicity and chemistry has been published, which suggested that the existing cyanide criteria should be reassessed.

This document provides guidance to States and Tribes authorized to adopt water quality standards under the Clean Water Act (CWA), to protect aquatic life from toxic effects of selenium.

Under the CWA, States and Tribes are to adopt water quality criteria to protect designated uses. Water Quality Water Quality Criteria for Cyanide Overview Report Prepared pursuant to Section 2(e) of the to provide guidelines for the establishment of site-specific ambient water quality objectives occurring to a water use, including aquatic life, under specified.

The existing Guidelines for Deriving Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Aquatic Life and Their Uses have not been updated since Although based on science of that time, the past 30 years have witnessed substantial scientific advancement in aquatic toxicology, aquatic biology, fate, transport, and effects modeling, and ecological risk assessment.

Water quality criteria adopted in State water quality standards could have the same numerical values as criteria developed under section However, in many situations States might want to adjust water quality criteria developed under section to reflect local environmental conditions before incorporation into water quality standards.

Approved water quality guidelines are policy statements and applied generically province wide, providing the basis for water quality assessments and to inform resource management decisions. Water quality guidelines are used to: protect aquatic life, wildlife and their habitats; protect water values, including: drinking water, public supply, and.
