EPA and ACWA Develop TMDL 10-Year Vision

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has formed a workgroup with the Association of Clean Water Administrators (Washington, D.C.) to develop a 10-year vision and goals for the agency’s total maximum daily load program. Tentatively, the group expects to release a draft early this year, with a finalized version by June. Through the vision, the program may take a more holistic approach that addresses point and nonpoint source pollution from a watershed rather than waterbody-specific perspective. In addition, the program will emphasize more-effective state implementation through watershed prioritization and load-reduction strategies based on water quality information.
