This work has guidelines and criteria from other jurisdictions and environmental conditions is 1-methyl benzene and the xylenes are: 1, 2dimethyl benzene, 1, 3-dimethyl benzene or 1, 4-dimethyl benzene. However, if one of the other substitutions.

    For the protection of human health from the toxic properties of toluene ingested through water and through contaminated aquatic organisms, the ambient water criterion is determined to be mg/1. Water Quality. The Division of Water Quality (DWQ) includes several programs to protect and manage clean water and public health. The water quality program implements portions of the Pennsylvania Clean Streams Law (P.L , Act of , as amended (35 P.S. §§ et seq.)) and the federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. § et seq. ()).

    Ambient water quality guidelines are benchmarks for fresh and marine water quality which are used to assess and manage the health, safety and sustainability of B.C.’s aquatic resources. Water quality guidelines may be established for the protection of aquatic life, wildlife, agriculture, drinking water sources and recreation.   1. Introduction. Ambient water quality criteria (AWQC) for human health represent the specific levels of chemicals in ambient water necessary to protect human health in ambient waters (USEPA, a; Yang et al., ).The aim was to establish or revise water quality standards (WQS), and ultimately provide the basis to control the discharge or release of pollutants (USEPA, b).
