Description

The Waterbody Inventory/Priority Waterbodies List (WI/PWL) dataset is an inventory of the state's surface water quality. This dataset provides a summary of general water quality conditions, tracks the degree to which a waterbody supports its designated uses, and monitors progress toward the identification and resolution of water quality problems, pollutants, and sources.

Limitations
1. There are several components of the overall WI/PWL datasets (Shoreline, Rivers/Streams, Lakes/Reservoirs, and Estuary). Each component should not be interpreted isolated from the other three datasets. 2. Please note that update years differ for individual basins. 3. WI/PWL basin updates vary in completion year. 4. WI/PWL database is updated on a rotating schedule that follows the statewide water quality monitoring program rotation. Information on the most recent basin update year is found in the joined Assessment attribute table. 5. Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of information, errors may be reflected in data supplied. The user must be aware of data conditions and bear responsibility for the appropriate use of the information with respect to possible errors, original map scale, collection methodology, currency of data, and other condition.
