The consistent, multi-scale approach used in all assessments helps to determine if certain types of water-quality issues are isolated or pervasive, and allows direct comparisons of how human activities, land use, and natural factors affect water quality and ecological health in the Nation's diverse geographic and environmental settings. The National Water-Quality Assessment Program—Science to Policy and Management. • Water-quality issues have become more complex. Forty years ago, concerns about water Source-water-quality assessments. that characterize the quality of the available, untreated resource, such as river water. Protecting Michigan's Water. EGLE ensures Michigan's water resources remain clean and abundant by establishing water quality standards, overseeing public water supplies, regulating the discharge of industrial and municipal wastewaters, monitoring water quality and the health of aquatic communities, developing policy, and fostering stewardship.
