Summary

This administrative regulation establishes procedures to protect the surface waters of the Commonwealth, and thus protect water resources. It states the designated uses of surface water and establishes a methodology to implement the antidegradation policy. The regulation establishes water quality standards that consist of designated legitimate uses of the surface waters of the commonwealth and the associated water quality criteria necessary to protect those uses. These water quality standards are minimum requirements that apply to all surface waters in the commonwealth of Kentucky in order to maintain and protect them for designated uses.
