The technical justification for implementation of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) has focused considerable attention on various sources of pollutant loads that enter a waterbody. Debate continues as to the proportioning of point loads versus non-point load contributions in impaired
waterbodies and their related effect on the inability of these waterbodies to meet numerical standards. The Upper Ashley River System in coastal South Carolina is currently facing this issue.
