Principles for Preparing Water Quality Objectives in British Columbia

Microform - 1986
Rate this:
Water quality objectives are prepared for specific bodies of fresh, estuarine, and coastal marine surface waters of the province as a part of the Ministry of the Environment's mandate to manage water quality. To limit the scope of the task, objectives are only prepared for waterbodies and for water quality characteristics which may be affected by human activity, now or in the foreseeable future. This paper describes the role of these objectives in B.C., and discusses factors that must be considered in preparing them, including assimilative capacity, initial dilution and mixing zones, compliance, streamflows, and pollution control.
