Abstract: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.
