If sufficient data for these parameters are available, the BLM can be used to calculate alternate criteria values for the copper criteria. When sediments on the southern shoreline of the Potomac River shift, the low water line shifts. Where death is not easily detected, immobilization is considered equivalent to death. water or a sudden change in the bed or course of a stream.
