    This section briefly describes the methodology used to construct the Environmental Performance Index. For a more general and authoritative explanation of composite indexing, we refer the reader to the OECD handbook on the subject (Nardo et al., ). Hsu et al. () explain the general process of constructing the EPI.   This draft update is based on EPA’s current methodology for deriving human health criteria as described in “Methodology for Deriving Ambient Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Human Health ()” and does not establish new policy.
