NOTICE: This ESRI GIS data set is based on the descriptive locations of the listed water bodies within the Year 2010 Integrated 305(b)/303(d) Report, however, it should not be considered as Georgia's approved list. While reasonable effort has been made to ensure this GIS data set accurately reflects the approved list, if discrepancies are found, the water body information in the .pdf documents mentioned below are to be considered official and supercede the GIS data set.On November 11, 2010, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division's Year 2010 Integrated 305(b)/303(d) Draft Report (also referred to as Water Quality in Georgia 2008-2009) and lists were approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (USEPA). The final and official, approved lists of water body classifications for Rivers/Streams, Lakes/Reservoirs, Coastal Streams, Coastal Beaches, and Sounds/Harbors can be found in .pdf format at http://www.georgiaepd.org/Documents/305b.html and in the compressed .zip with this GIS data set.This GIS data set represents the State of Georgia 2008-2009 assessment of water quality and resulting Year 2010 305(b)/303(d) list of waters prepared in response to Sections 305(b) and 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and in accordance with the USEPA implementing regulations and guidance. Assessed water bodies are classified as assessment pending for, supporting or not supporting their designated uses according to a comparison of water quality monitoring results to water quality standards and other pertinent information.This GIS data set is an ESRI polygon shapefile representing Year 2010 305(b)/303(d) listed Lakes, Sounds, and Harbors areas at a scale of 1:100,000 in Geographic North American Datum 1983 (NAD83). The majority of the GIS data set is based on previous Georgia EPD GIS shapefiles for the 305(b)/303(d) List for the Years 2008, 2006, 2004, 2002, and 2000. The GIS data set for Year 2010 305(b)/303(d) list has been significantly expanded and improved over previous years GIS shapefiles. All new Lakes, Sounds, and Harbors segments have been created using the National Hydrography Dataset(NHD) Medium Resolution geodatabase feature class. Harbors were created by Georgia DNR Coastal Resource Division using aerial photography and color IR DOQQs.When using this GIS dataset, the polygons represent the area of the listed water body within the state of Georgia. The associated attribute table includes all fields and information within the 305(b)/303(d) list that corresponds to the GIS polygon in addition to USGS Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 8 and 10.
