Coming Soon: Total Maximum Daily Loads and the Statewide Storm Water Industrial General Permit
Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) are set to protect the beneficial uses of a particular water body. TMDLs are adopted into basin plans and define the sources of pollutants (many includes industrial storm water), but TMDLs are implemented though permits. The Statewide Storm Water Industrial General Permit (IGP) will be incorporating implementation requirements for the first time and this presentation will outline the process, schedule, and compliance concepts for the amendment of TMDL implementation language into the IGP.
