Total Maximum Daily Loads

Print E-mail

Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDL) have been used extensively by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state environmental agencies in implementing the Clean Water Act by establishing maximum pollution limits for industrial wastewater dischargers. EPA has a history of developing and approving TMDLs containing non-daily load expressions. NACWA has argued to request state water quality authorities and the EPA to address TMDL issues on their receiving waters in a non-daily format with few exceptions.
