Public Waters Inventory Lists

To access county-level lists

Original Public Waters Inventory (PWI) lists are available as Adobe Portable Document Format files. Select the PWI list you wish to view by choosing a county using the map tool found below.

Please note that some public waters in the original PWI lists have had their names legally changed. Many of the name changes were made to remove offensive names from the PWI. The original PWI lists have not been edited to include the name changes, but a summary of the name changes is available from this page.

[NOTE: You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these lists.]
