Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Sections 305(b) and 314 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) require states, territories, and authorized tribes to provide biennial reports to EPA on the condition of waters within their boundaries. EPA regulations at 40 CFR 130.7 require states to provide biennial submissions of impaired waters lists. EPA provides guidance on these reports in a way that supports the Agency's strategy for achieving a broad-scale, national inventory of water quality conditions. The guidance is from EPA to states, territories, authorized tribes, and interstate commissions ("jurisdictions") to help states prepare and submit Section 305(b) reports to EPA. Use of the integrated report (IR) format provides jurisdictions a recommended reporting format and suggested content to be used in developing a single document that integrates the reporting requirements of Sections 303(d), 305(b), and 314. This format allows jurisdictions to report on the water quality standards attained for all waters, document the availability of data and information for each segment, identify certain trends in water quality conditions, and set priorities for protecting and restoring the health of the nation's aquatic resources.

Section 305(b) of the Clean Water Act requires each state to conduct  water quality surveys to determine a water body's overall health,  including whether or not basic uses are being met. States, tribes, and  other jurisdictions define appropriate uses for a waterbody and  incorporate these uses into water quality standards that are approved  by EPA. Water body uses include aquatic life protection, fish and  shellfish production, drinking water supply, swimming, boating,  fishing, and agricultural irrigation, among others.
Purpose:
The Clean Water Act protects and preserves water quality in the United States by protecting the uses designated for specific waterbodies.  The results of the 305(b) assessments are not raw data but rather statements of the degree to which each water body supports the uses designated in state or tribal water quality standards.  For example, two rivers may have the exact same chemical and physical makeup, but one of the rivers may be considered as impaired because of different water quality standards
Supplemental information:
Each state and  tribe collects these assessments and extensive programmatic  information in a 305(b) report, a document usually involving  information from multiple agencies. Reports are submitted to  EPA every two years. Data in 305(b) reports reflect water quality  conditions for two years prior to the year of the reporting cycle.

When states identify impaired water bodies through  305(b) assessments, they are required to identify the waters and to develop total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) for them, with oversight  from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  Through the TMDL process,  methods are implemented to improve a water body's  status to fully supporting.  Additional information on the TMDL process is available through the EPA Office of Water TMDL web site.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
Metadata profiles defining additonal information:
Profile: ESRI Metadata Profile
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.0
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
