The ability to identify the factor or factors causing aquatic life impairment of waterbodies is of use to wastewater utilities and industries as they participate in watershed assessments, Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) studies, and other watershed management processes triggered by impairment under the Clean Water Act.

The Water Environment Research Foundation has been funding research to partition the effects on freshwater aquatic ecosystems from the underlying factors (e.g. habitat alteration, toxic metals, nutrients) causing aquatic life impairment, and ultimately the contribution of point sources to these impairments. In September 2005, WERF convened a group of researchers and WERF subscribers to assess the progress made toward developing tools that subscribers can use to determine if their facilities are contributing to aquatic life impairment, identify currently available tools for partitioning effects from multiple factors, and summarize the applicability of these tools for WERF subscribers.
