Summary

These sections describe general standards of water quality and purity as well as standards for specific water bodies (Parts 800-941). The regulations provide classifications for different types of waters and set standards for each. Standards include prohibitions on the discharge of certain substances and “best use” guidelines, as well as criteria for water purity, temperature, and allowable discharges. Part 704 (http://www.dec.ny.gov/regs/4589.html) refers specifically to allowable thermal discharges.
