Abstract

The following discussion of restoration and protection of water quality in streams and rivers recognizes the role water plays in ecosystem processes. Water quality cannot easily be discussed from a single disciplinary perspective because issues span a number of disciplines and relate to physical, chemical, and biological components of the ecosystem. In addition, the separation of purely technical issues from economic, political, and social factors is impossible when constraints on restoration or protection efforts are considered. In organizing our discussion of the restoration and protection of water quality in streams, we felt it important to first review the context in which restoration and protection of water quality is viewed, identify uses and impacts, and then discuss the general approaches to restoration and protection which are available to water quality managers.
