Abstract:The State of Iowa listed Rock Creek, a minor tributary of the Mississippi River, as a high priority stream on their 303(d) list developed in 1998. A total maximum daily load (TMDL) was developed for the stream for nitrate/nitrite/ammonia, primarily due to contamination from a closed fertilizer plant. The owners of the shuttered facility commissioned a number of mitigative measures to reduce the impact to the stream. This paper summarizes the development and the implementation of that TMDL.
