Section 303(d) of the federal Clean Water Act and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys (US EPA) implementing regulations direct each State to identify and list waters, known as water quality limited segments (WQLSs), in which currently required controls of a specified substance are inadequate to achieve water quality standards (WQSs). 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 WQSs, or demonstrate that WQSs are being met (CFR 2007). This TMDL is a revision of a previously approved TMDL.
