The director, in establishing this category, shall consider public involvement as set forth in this chapter.
(2)  "Medium." The director shall place water bodies in this category taking into account the availability and quality of data, department resources, and whether the severity of the pollution poses a risk to designated or existing beneficial uses.
(3)  "Low." The director shall place water bodies in this category taking into account the availability and quality of data, department resources, and whether the severity of pollution poses a minimal risk to designated or existing beneficial uses.
