Abstract:

This paper describes the approach used in the development of a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) in a biologically impaired urban stream. In particular, it discusses and presents the methodology used in identifying the stressor causing the benthic impairment, the rationale used to develop the TMDL endpoint and to address the stormwater reduction. This methodology is applied to the Accotink Creek, which was listed on Virginia's Water Quality Assessment 305(b)/303(d) Integrated Report for general standard benthic impairment.
