A use attainability analysis (UAA) is a structured scientific assessment of the factors affecting the attainment of a designated use in a specified water body. Protocols for conducting UAAs in Kansas maybe found at http://www.kdhe.state.ks.us/befs/uaas/UAAGuidance.pdf. The UAAs conducted in 2001 utilized the expedited stream recreational use UAA protocol.
This website was created to provide information to the public regarding the findings of UAAs conducted during 2001. A collection of pictures and field notes taken by Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) personnel with an accompanying report are presented at this site. KDHE is presenting these UAAS to give the public an opportunity to review and comment on the designated uses in the Kansas Surface Water Register, May 23, 2002, which is proposed for adoption by reference in K.A.R. 28-16-28d(d)(2). The 60-day public comment period ends August 19, 2002.
