The Ambient Water Quality Monitoring and Assesment Program collects and interprets physical, chemical, and biological data from State waters.  One of the major functions of this program is to support designated use assessments, as required under the Federal Clean Water Act, and this is communicated through the Integrated Water Quality Report.  Another key role is to provide summary information of important program elements for use by DEEP and the public.
