This document establishes Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for four portions of the Newport Bay system: Ayer Creek, Newport Creek, Newport Bay mainstem and Kitts Branch. Newport Bay (basin code 02-13-01-05) was identified on the States 1996 list of water quality limited segments (WQLSs) submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) as impaired by nutrients and fecal coliform. The TMDLs described within this document were developed to address localized water quality impairments identified within these four portions of the watershed; the fecal coliform in these portions of the Newport Bay watershed and nutrient impairments in other portions of the watershed will be addressed at a future date.
