Purpose of the meeting
The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and its contractors, James Madison University and 3E Consulting will discuss the process that will be used to complete a water quality study known as a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for the North Fork Rivanna River and its tributaries. The river is listed on the 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report as impaired due to violations of Virginia’s water quality standards for Aquatic Life Use. This is an opportunity for local residents to learn about the condition of the river, share information about the area, and become involved in the process of local water quality improvement. In the case of inclement weather, the meeting will be held at the same location on November 7, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. and the 30-day public comment period will be extended accordingly. This public informational meeting will be held to introduce the local community to the water quality improvement process in Virginia, known as the TMDL Process, provide information on biological monitoring efforts and sources, invite participation and solicit input, review the next steps and accept volunteers to be part of a Technical Advisory Committee. Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and §62.1-44.19:7.C of the Code of Virginia requires DEQ to develop TMDLs for pollutants responsible for each impaired water contained in Virginia’s 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report. The meeting will be open to the public and all are welcome. Additional information is available at: ritten comments will be accepted through November 29, 2018 and should include the name, address, and telephone number of the person submitting the comments.
