2008 Impaired Lakes 303 d list in Category 5

Metadata Updated: April 9, 2015

This data includes lakes of Arkansas that have been designated as Impaired Waterbodies (Category 5). It consists of a subset of the lakes from the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) Medium Resolution (1:100,000) Flowline. Category 5 is described as follows: The waterbody may be impaired, or one or more designated uses may not be attained. During the 2008 listing cycle, Waterbodies in Category 5 are placed in one of the following subcategories: a. Truly impaired; develop a TMDL or other corrective action(s) for the listed parameter. b. Waters currently not attaining standards, but may be de-listed with future revisions to Regulation No. 2, the state water quality standards; c. Waters in which the data is questionable because of QA/QC procedures and which require confirmation before a TMDL is scheduled; d. Waters which need data verification to confirm use impairment (additional sampling, biological assessment) before a TMDL is scheduled; e. Waters which are impaired by point source discharges and future permits restrictions are expected to correct the problem; f. These are waters that are not currently meeting a water quality standard. However, "the basis for not meeting an applicable water quality standard is not caused by a pollutant, but is attributed to other types of pollution" (EPA, 2005). g. Waterbodies added to ADEQ's list of Impaired Waterbodies by EPA.
