Section 303(d) of the federal Clean Water Act (CWA) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)s implementing regulations direct each State to identify and list waters, known as water quality limited segments (WQLSs), in which current required controls of a specified substance are inadequate to achieve water quality standards. This list of impaired waters is commonly referred to as the 303(d) list. For each WQLS, the State is to either establish a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) of the specified substance that the waterbody can receive without violating water quality standards, or demonstrate that water quality standards are being met. Langford Creek (basin code 02-13-05-06) was identified on the States 1996 list of water quality WQLSs as impaired by nutrients, sediments and fecal coliform. This document addresses the nutrient impairment in the tidal portion of Langford Creek; the sediment and fecal coliform impairments will be addressed at a future date. A separate action regarding St. Pauls Millpond is being considered for the future.
