Water Cleanup Plan Studies for Toxics
Water Cleanup Plans, also called Total Maximum Daily Load evaluations for toxic chemicals or toxics TMDLs, determine how much of a chemical that a water body can receive each day, while still meeting water quality standards. These evaluations form the basis of Water Quality Improvement Projects for these water bodies.
Toxics TMDLs are conducted statewide. Many of the studies have been for legacy chemicals, those no longer in use.
