Suspended solids and sediments are regarded as the two leading pollutants of the nations's streams and waterbodies. They serve as carriers for various pesticides, radioactive materials, and nutrients. Section 303(d) of the 1972 Clean Water Act requires states, territories, and authorized tribes to identify and list impaired waters every two years and to develop Total Maximum Daily Loads (TDMLs) for pollutants in these waters. Mathematical models are widely accepted, effective and powerful tools for TMDL development, and evaluating performances of Best Management Practices (BMP). In this paper, a probabilistic, risk-based mathematical optimization framework is presented and proposed as a strategy for solving the TDML-BMP problem involving multiple stressors in feature endeavors.
