Planning for and responding to water quality problems fall increasingly on the shoulders of municipal officials, volunteer conservation commissions and other nonspecialists in environmental regulation. These people need an accessible, comprehensive source of information on dealing with water quality problems. This report is such a source. The manual is organized in a modular loose-leaf format, with sections describing symptoms, likely causes and impacts of water quality problems as well as detailing appropriate emergency and long-term responses to both acute and chronic issues. In addition, a section on federal, state and local agencies includes adddresses, phone numbers and major responsibilities for each. Another section summarizes the major federal and state legislation associated with water quality protection.
