Appendix B: 2014 Integrated Report of Water Quality in Louisiana - Category 1 Addendum: Appendix B contains water bodies and suspected causes of impairment that were formerly considered impaired in the 2012 Integrated Report. They are no longer considered impaired by Louisiana. More recent data or information was used to make this determination during the 2014 Integrated Report assessment process. Appendix B is used here as a tool to track changes to the Integrated Report over time.

Appendix C: Complete list of suspected causes of impairment 

Appendix D: Complete list of suspected sources of impairment 

Appendix E: Complete listing of Louisiana's Ambient Surface Water Quality Network Sites 

Appendix F: Public Comments on the 2014 Integrated Report and LDEQ's Response to Comments: Appendix F is a compilation of all comments received regarding the 2014 Integrated Report, along with LDEQ's response to those comments.

Appendix G: Louisiana's 2014 Section 303(d) List: Appendix G represents a subset of Louisiana's 2014 Integrated Report (IR) and includes only those water body impairment combinations (WICs) reported as Categories 5 and 5RC. As has been noted in the body of the IR text, WICs in Categories 5 and 5RC of the IR assessments are the only WICs on Louisiana's 2014 303(d) List. This table was developed only as an aid to the public and does not constitute Louisiana's 303(d) List. Every effort was made to maintain consistency between Appendix A Categories 5 and 5RC WICs and Appendix G. However, in order to ensure the accuracy of the overall Integrated Report, only those WICs in Appendix A, Categories 5 and 5RC, constitute the official 2014 303(d) List (please see Appendix A for other WIC impairments).
