Procedures to Classify Waters
 
The process of classifying the streams and rivers of the State of Connecticut are provided for and detailed in Section 26-141b-5 of the Regulations: The proposed stream flow classification of a stream or river segment is based on ecological conditions and human use characteristics, and determines flow management goals and applicable flow standards for that segment.  Proposed stream flow classifications were developed using known information on factors indicative of the degree of human alteration of natural stream flow, environmental flow needs and existing and future needs for public water supply.
