Purpose of the meeting
The TAC will assist in development of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) to address benthic impairments in select tributaries of the James River. Segments of Bailey Creek, Nuttree Branch, Oldtown Creek, Proctors Creek, Rohoic Creek, and Swift Creek in Chesterfield, Dinwiddie, and Prince George Counties, and the Cities of Petersburg and Hopewell, which have been listed on the § 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report as impaired for failing to support the standards for aquatic life use due to an altered benthic community. This standard is intended to protect the aquatic life designated use, which states that all of the Commonwealth’s waterways will support a diverse and abundant population of aquatic life. A TMDL is the total amount of a pollutant a waterbody can receive and still meet water quality standards. To restore water quality, pollutant levels must be reduced to the TMDL allocated amount. Federal and state laws require TMDL studies to be performed for all impaired water bodies. The TAC for this study provides technical input and insight of local and regional issues related to the benthic impairments noted above. The third TAC meeting will discuss allocation scenarios for this project. Information on previous meetings and the stressor identification can be found here:
