A Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) is a regulatory term in the U.S. Clean Water Act, describing a value of the maximum amount of a pollutant that a body of water can receive while still meeting water quality standards. Alternatively, TMDL is an allocation of that water pollutant deemed acceptable to the subject receiving waters. TMDLs have been used extensively by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state environmental agencies in implementing the Clean Water Act by establishing maximum pollution limits for industrial wastewater dischargers. Goosefare Brook is a small brownwater stream located on the coastal plain in York County, Maine. Approximately 4000 acres of the watershed are located in the city of Saco, with 1000 acres of the lower watershed in the Town of Old Orchard Beach. The headwaters drain Saco Heath, a raised peatland, and the stream discharges to Saco Bay between Old Orchard Beach and Ferry Beach State Park. Appendix V contains a set of descriptive photos of the stream.
