NR 102.06(7) (7)Site-specific criteria. A criterion contained within this section may be modified by rule for a specific surface water segment or waterbody. A site-specific criterion may be adopted in place of the generally applicable criteria in this section where site-specific data and analysis using scientifically defensible methods and sound scientific rationale demonstrate a different criterion is protective of the designated use of the specific surface water segment or waterbody.
NR 102.06 Note Note: Reservoirs, two-story fishery lakes and water bodies with high natural background phosphorus concentrations are the most appropriate water bodies for site-specific criteria.
NR 102.06 Note Note: When placing a water body on the 303 (d) list as impaired for phosphorus, the department considers factors such as frequency and duration of criterion exceedances, the time of year of the exceedance and the magnitude of each exceedance above the applicable criterion. The department may also choose to consider other factors such as the concentration of suspended algae and floating plants; density of benthic algae; macrophyte density; minimum and daily change in dissolved oxygen levels due to diurnal swings; water clarity; and natural background phosphorus concentrations. The 303 (d) list is a list of impaired waters established by the department and approved by US EPA pursuant to 33 USC 1313 (d) (1) (A) and 40 CFR 130.7. Information on frequency and duration is contained in the department's impaired waters listing guidance, “Wisconsin Consolidated Assessment and Listing Methodology."
