Abstract
Section 303(d) ofthe Federal Clean Water Act requires states to identify waterbodies that are not meeting water quality standards and to develop total maximum daily pollutant loads for those waterbodies. A total maximum daily load (TMDL) is the amount of a pollutant that a waterbody can assimilate without exceeding the established water quality standard for that pollutant. Through a TMDL, pollutant loads can be allocated to point sources and nonpoint sources discharging to the waterbody. The Flat Creek/Salt Creek basin, which is located in Planning Segment 2D, flows into Haynes Creek, which is a tributary of Smackover Creek in south central Arkansas in the Gulf Coastal Plain Ecoregion. The designated beneficial uses that have been established by the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) for all parts of the Flat Creek/Salt Creek basin are seasonal Gulf Coastal fishery; secondary contact recreation; and domestic, industrial and agricultural water supply. Where the drainage area is 10 mi2 or more, the designated uses also include perennial Gulf Coastal fishery and primary contact recreation (ADEQ 2000).
