Description
 
The 1972 Clean Water Act aimed to ńˇýrestore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the nationńˇ╗s waters.ńˇŁ Under the act, states must establish water quality standards; for waters that do not meet these standards, states must develop Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), which the Environmental and Protection Agency (EPA) approves. TMDLs set targeted limits for pollutants but are not self-implementing; EPA and states help reduce pollutants by issuing permits for point sources, whereas they provide voluntary incentives to reduce nonpoint source pollution. This report examined (1) EPAńˇ╗s and statesńˇ╗ responsibilities in developing and implementing TMDLs; (2) what is known about the status of long-established TMDLs; (3) the extent to which such TMDLs contain features key to attaining water quality standards; and (4) the extent to which TMDLs exhibit factors that facilitate effective implementation. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
