In October 2006, STAC published its recommendations for the CBP for the use of the cumulative frequency diagram approach (CFD) for defining water quality criteria and to determine water quality criteria attainment. In May 2009, the CBP and its Water Quality Steering Committee requested that STAC re-convene a panel to review several proposed modifications in the application of the CFD approach to the benthic index of biotic integrity (Weisberg et al. 1997). STAC member Doug Lipton, UMD, coordinated the review, carried out by a four-member independent expert panel in June 2009.
