The Hydrographic Region II
The Hydrographic Basins of the Guandu, Guarda and Guandu-Mirim rivers, the area of influence of the Guandu-RJ Committee, make up Hydrographic Region II.
Management Contracts (GC), in general, are agreements signed between the Government and other entities, which establish management responsibilities, goals based on indicators and evaluation criteria. On October 18, 2010, AGEVAP signed with the State Environmental Institute (INEA), with the mediation of the Guandu-RJ Committee, the INEA Management Contract No. 03/2010, for the exercise of the functions of Watersheds Agency of the Guandu, Guarda and Guandu-Mirim rivers.

Multi-Year Application Plan (PAP)
I – Assure water quality compatible with the priority uses to which they are destined;
II – Decrease the costs of combating water pollution, through permanent preventive actions;
III – Establish the water quality goals to be achieved.
In 2014, the Guandu-RJ Committee approved Resolution No. 107, which addresses the proposed classification of water bodies into use classes for 24 stretches of rivers in Hydrographic Region II, presented by the State Environmental Institute (INEA). This guidance was approved by the State Water Resources Council (CERHI), through CERHI Resolution No. 127/2014.
Grant and legislation
To make use of water in the State of Rio de Janeiro, surface or underground, for example, it is necessary to have a grant from the public authorities, in accordance with State Law No. 3.239/1999. The objective is to guarantee access to water for all users, aiming at the multiple use and preservation of endemic or endangered species of fauna and flora.

Water user records
Registration is a prerequisite for requesting a permit for the use of water and environmental certificates of water reserve and insignificant use, in addition to serving as a basis for charging for water use.

Knowledge of the hydrological processes of a hydrographic basin is essential for directing the actions of water resources management related to water use.

The preparation of this report is one of the goals to be met by the Paraíba do Sul River Basin Water Pro-Management Association (AGEVAP), corresponding to indicator 1.3 (Preparation and Dissemination of a Digital Report on the Basin’s Environmental Scenario), in the scope of the Management Contract signed with the State Environmental Institute (INEA), which has the intervention of the Guandu-RJ Committee and delegates to AGEVAP the functions of Water Agency of the Hydrographic Region II.
