In 2000, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) published ambient water quality criteria recommendations for rivers and streams, and directed states to set water quality standards "to protect the physical, biological and chemical integrity of their waters." The recommended criteria were developed for different ecoregions, and reference conditions were proposed for total nitrogen, total phosphorus, chlorophyll a and turbidity.
