Title: Direct Surface Water Discharge is site specific
Text: Water Management: Disposal: Direct Surface Water Discharge: "Discharge options such as flow based discharge, rate based discharge, or other discharge options may be appropriate depending on site specific conditions. Flow based discharge can be used to control the quantity of poor quality CBM produced water discharged to receiving streams during times of low flow in streams and rivers when the potential for degradation of surface water quality is greatest."
