2012 Recreational Water Quality Criteria
EPA has released its 2012 recreational water quality criteria (RWQC) recommendations for protecting human health in all coastal and non-coastal waters designated for primary contact recreation use. EPA provides two sets of recommended criteria. Primary contact recreation is protected if either set of criteria recommendations are adopted into state water quality standards.
