This Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), developed under Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act, addresses both point and non-point source loading of fecal coliform to Lakes Hood and Spenard. Lakes Hood and Spenard are among several lakes scattered throughout the Anchorage bowl that are presently listed on the State of Alaska 1996 303(d) list. Designated beneficial uses for Lakes Hood and Spenard include (1) water supply (2) water recreation, and (3) growth and propagation of fish, shellfish, and other aquatic life. The affected beneficial use is water supply. Existing data show that the water supply standard for fecal coliform is exceeded from May through September, based on limited samples.
