Purpose of the meeting
This is the first public meeting on the development of the TMDL to address the bacteria and aquatic life impairments for these segments. The impaired segments include: 19.85 miles of Big Reed Island Creek from its headwaters on Hurricane Knob downstream to the Pine Creek confluence; 13.81 miles of Big Reed Island Creek from the Bobbitt Creek confluence to the Greasy Creek confluence; 9.85 miles of Big Reed Island Creek from the Greasy Creek confluence to the confluence with the New River; 13.63 miles of Greasy Creek from the Carroll/Floyd line downstream to the Big Reed Island Creek confluence; 11 miles of Little Reed Island Creek from the confluence with Big Reed Island Creek upstream to the Rock Creek confluence; 19.7 miles of Little Reed Island Creek from the Rock Creek confluence upstream to the Hillsville Public Water Supply intake; 5.28 miles of East Fork Little Reed Island Creek from the Hillsville Public Water Supply intake upstream 5 miles and 13.35 miles of Island Creek and tributaries northeast of Hillsville near Huffman Knob. These streams are listed on the 2016 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report as impaired due to exceedances of the State’s water quality standards for bacteria, in Carroll, Floyd, Pulaski, and Wythe Counties and the town of Hillsville, Virginia. In addition, Big Reed Island Creek, Island Creek and Little Reed Island Creek are listed as impaired for failure to support the aquatic life use. The public comment period will begin on September 17, 2018 and end on October 17, 2018. An advisory committee to assist in development of this TMDL will be established. Persons interested in assisting should notify the DEQ contact person by the end of the comment period and provide their name, address, phone number, email address and the organization you represent (if any). Notification of the composition of the panel will be sent to all applicants. A component of a TMDL is the Waste Load Allocations (WLAs); therefore, this notice is provided pursuant to §2.2-4006.A.14 of the Administrative Process Act for any future adoption of the TMDL’s associated WLAs. Information on the development of the TMDLs for these impairments is available upon request. Questions or information requests should be addressed to the contact person listed.
