This workgroup provides input and assistance to the department in developing and refining appropriate water quality standards for the protection of Missouri’s streams, lakes and wetlands. Water quality standards are provisions in Missouri’s state regulations that describe the desired condition of a water body and the means by which that condition will be protected or achieved. The three core components of water quality standards are the designated uses of a water body, the criteria to protect those uses and antidegradation requirements to protect existing uses.
