DescriptionIn 2000 the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) encouraged states to integrate the 305(b) Water Quality Inventory Report and the 303(d) List of Impaired Waters into a single Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report. The five components of New Jersey's Integrated Report Package are as follows: a front-end report entitled New Jersey 2002 Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report, summarizing the contents of the integrated list as it applies to designated use attainment statewide within New Jersey; the Integrated List itself, comprised of sublists 1-5 and priority ranking (Appendix I); A schedule of total maximum daily loads (TMDL) and other actions to be taken by 2004; a Comparison Document indicating where waters previously listed on the 1998 303(d) List currently are listed within the 2002 Integrated List; and a Response to Comments Document containing all DEP responses to public and EPA comments on the Methods Document and Integrated List as mandated by the public process. The Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Methods (Methods Document) is also included, detailing DEP's assessment methods as applied to the Integrated List discussed above.
NotePurpose: To present the extent to which New Jersey is attaining water quality standards (the 305(b) portion of the effort) and identify waters that are impaired and need TMDLs as required under section 303(d) of the Act.
