National Hydrography Dataset NHDFlowline layer with a spatial representation of designated water uses defined in Title 25 Environmental Protection, Department of Environmental Protection, Chapter 93, Water Quality Standards. The Pennsylvania Code just cited provides a list of all streams or watersheds (basins) in the state along with their associated designated water uses.
