TMDL Analysis Site Offers Results Data to Users
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has developed a new Web site to communicate information about Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Program results to technically specialized audiences, including TMDL developers, state water programs, academia, other federal agency programs, and EPA water quality staff.
A TMDL is a calculation of the maximum amount of a pollutant that a waterbody can receive and still meet water quality standards, and an allocation of that load among the various sources of that pollutant.
The TMDL Program Results Analysis Project is a multi-year effort directed at measuring and analyzing programmatic and environmental results of the program. The Web site provides a Clean Water Act Impaired Waters Program Pipeline navigation feature, fact sheets, EPA reports and Web sites, EPA grantee reports and Web sites, publications, and datasets related to this effort.
