The Chesapeake Bay Basin Toxic Loading and Release Inventory was developed in response to the 1988 Basinwide Toxics Reduction Strategy commitment to establish a baseline on point and nonpoint source loadings of toxic substances to the Bay basin. The inventory is divided into three broad but distinct categories: loadings, fall line loadings, and releases. The Loadings category includes point sources (industrial, municipal, and federal), urban stormwater, atmospheric deposition, and shipping. The category represents actual discharges to tidal and non-tidal surface waters.
