Water quality guidelines are developed in order that water quality data can be assessed and site-specific water quality objectives can be prepared. They provide the benchmarks for the assessment of water quality and setting water quality objectives. In general, water quality problems are non-existent if the substance concentration is lower than the guideline(s). However, if the substance concentration exceeds its guideline, an assessment of the water quality is desirable.
