Title: Guidelines and criteria for water quality management in Ontario
Author: Ontario Ministry of the Environment
Abstract: In 1967, the Ontario Water Resources Commission announced its Policy Guidelines for Water Quality Control in the Province of Ontario. This publication contains a re-statement of the guidelines and introduces water quality criteria for various uses including public, agricultural and industrial water supply recreation, aesthetic enjoyment and the propagation of fish and wildlife. The use of water for assimilation and dilution of treated wastes must take into consideration these many desirable uses. Application of the criteria to water uses within the drainage basins of the province, or parts thereof, will lead to the development of water quality standards for the control of water pollution. Enough water of suitable quality for all of Ontario is the overall objective of the Ministry of the Environment.
