These regulations provide procedures to propose a reclassification of State waters for permitting purposes. Requests must address the factual basis for reclassification, including the size, depth, surface area covered, volume, direction and rate of flow, stream gradient and temperature of the water; character of the district bordering said waters and its suitability for residential, agricultural, industrial or recreational purposes; the uses which have been made, are being made or may be made, of said waters; and the existing quality of said waters.
