Dates: October 8, November 12, 2014 • Time : 1-3pm EST
Regional and local TMDLs are increasingly driving the selection and implementation of BMPs. Across the country, there is a tremendous need for communities to understand which BMPs can be used, how much pollutant removal credit they receive and at what cost. Many lessons have been learned from places where implementation has been progressing. This two-part series will focus on a couple of key elements of TMDL planning and implementation.Session 1: Local TMDLs & Regional/River Basin TMDLs: A Happy Engagement or a Shotgun Wedding?
Increasingly, TMDLs are nested, with TMDLs for local waterways addressing local impairments (e.g., for bacteria, biological standards, dissolved oxygen, local pollutants) nested within larger watershed or river basin TMDLs, that are likely to address nutrients and sediment. Examples include the Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes, Mississippi Basin, and several large river basins in the Northeast. The question is whether these TMDLs “talk to each other,” and how communities can best pick the most effective suite of BMPs to address TMDLs at all levels. This webcast will explore the issue of nested TMDLs and how analytical tools are emerging to integrate and coordinate management practices implemented at the local and regional levels.
