The Federal Advisory Committee on the TMDL Program adopted its charge on November 19, 1996, as a subgroup of NACEPT. The Committee's charge included: recommending ways to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and pace of State, Tribal, and EPA TMDL programs under Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act; recommending the appropriate role of States, Federal agencies, Tribes, and members of the public to achieve TMDL program success; and identifying barriers to success and recommending ways to overcome them. Based on substantive deliberations, the Committee has produced this report containing consensus stakeholder recommendations that fulfill this charge. The Committee's specific recommendations cover many aspects of the TMDL program, including: identifying impaired waterbodies (listing); implications of listing a waterbody; pace and scheduling of TMDL development; criteria for developing and approving TMDLs; implementation planning; the TMDL allocation process; special challenges; public communications; stakeholder involvement; tribal participation; program/agency cooperation; and federal/State/Tribal capacity.
