The September 1996 Delaware Estuary Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) identified, among other things, the need to mitigate the impacts of PCBs in the Estuary. Each Estuary state – Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania – has longstanding fish advisories restricting consumption, in part due to the presence of PCBs. Included as one of the actions recommended by the CCMP was the implementation of ‘phased limits on toxic pollutants using the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) approach.’ The TMDL Consent Decree for the State of Delaware includes a deadline of December 15, 2003 for the Estuary PCB TMDL.
