[DAGGER] Warm-water fish indicates protection of aquatic life warm-water fish, not the establishment of a warm-water fishery.

a Refer to NAC 445A.122 and 445A.2142 for beneficial use terminology.

b Maximum allowable increase in temperature above water temperature at the boundary of an approved mixing zone except during storm flow conditions.

c The total suspended solids standard does not apply when flows are greater than 110 percent of average flow as measured at the nearest gage. "Average flow" is defined as the 12-month rolling average of the average monthly flow.

d Any discharge from a point source into the Las Vegas Wash must not exceed a log mean of 200 per 100 milliliters based on a minimum of not less than five samples taken over a 30-day period, nor may more than 10 percent of the total samples taken during any 30-day period exceed 400 per 100 milliliters.

e The water quality criteria for toxic materials are specified in NAC 445A.1236.
