    Abstract

    Federal Water Pollution Control legislation enacted in 1965 requires that the States establish water quality criteria and provide for implementation of quality controls based upon such criteria. These criteria should be based upon sound scientific fact if the public interest is to be served by this legislative directive. ASTM Committee D-19 on Industrial Water believes that this National Meeting has been a worthwhile contribution of the professional community to the task faced by the States in complying with the Water Quality Act of 1965. It has been the purpose of this Meeting to evaluate the present state of scientific knowledge of quality requirements for water to be used in agriculture, for municipal and industrial supplies, and for recreation.
