Abstract:

This paper describes the approach used in the development of a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) in a biologically impaired stream. In particular, it discusses and presents the methodology used in identifying the stressor causing the benthic impairment, the development of the TMDL nutrient endpoint, and the modeling framework used in developing the load and waste allocations. This methodology is applied to the Jackson River, which was listed on Virginia's Water Quality Assessment 305(b)/303(d) Integrated Report for a general standard benthic impairment .
