Table Name: TRI_WATER_STREAM
Description: The name of the stream, river, lake, or other water body to which the chemical is discharged. The name is listed as it appears on the NPDES permit, or, if the facility does not have a NPDES Permit, as the water body is publicly known. This is not a list of all streams through which the toxic chemical flows but is a list of direct discharges. If more than one name is listed, the facility has a separate discharge to each water body listed. (Data in TRI_WATER_STREAM were submitted on EPA Form R , Part II, Section 5, 'Quantity of the Toxic Chemical Entering each Environmental Medium'. See specific 'Data Source' for each column.)
