A TMDL study calculates the maximum amount of a pollutant a waterbody can withstand. It also identifies necessary reductions and allocates them to one or more sources.
The end goal of a TMDL study is to develop a plan and potential starting point for restoration or protection activities.
This project, which began in July 2015, builds on and makes use of existing data and research, and will result in a study document available for public review and comment prior to submission to the United States Environmental Protection Agency for approval.
