To improve efficiencies, take a watershed approach, and promote collaboration in TMDL development, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), and Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) prepared a TMDL strategy document inviting agencies and organizations to take on the role of a lead stakeholder, facilitating involvement and collaboration amongst community interests with the objective of developing TMDLs that would be implemented by the regulated community in a cooperative fashion.

The City of LA accepted the invitation and is now leading the stakeholder-led TMDL effort for the LA River and Ballona Creek. This effort is called “CREST” or “Cleaner Rivers through Effective Stakeholder TMDLs.” The anticipated result of CREST will be to achieve TMDL development and implementation strategies that will address multiple pollutants with a combination of integrated projects. These integrated projects will not only provide for water quality improvements to comply with TMDLs but also greater community benefits including enhancement to community parks and wetlands, and improvements to institutional facilities.
