||On the basis of water quality problems associated with nutrients and sediments, Adkins Pond, in the Pocomoke River watershed (02-13-02-03) was identified on Maryland's 1998 list of WQLSs as being impaired. This document establishes Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for the nutrient phosphorus and sediments entering Adkins Pond. Adkins Pond is an impoundment located in southeastern Wicomico County, Maryland. The water overflows the dam into Adkins Race, a tributary to the Pocomoke River. Adkins Pond is used as a recreational facility for boating and fishing with an adjacent picnic area. Adkins Pond is impacted by a high sediment load, which has resulted in excessive sedimentation and loss of the pond's volume. This threatens the ability of the water body to maintain and support fishing, and propagation of fish and other aquatic life. The pond also experiences occasional nuisance seasonal algae blooms, due to over enrichment by nutrients, which interfere with recreational uses.
