Purpose of the meeting
PURPOSE OF THE MEETING: The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will host the first TMDL Community Engagement meeting for the Greendale Creek and Unnamed Tributary TMDL on Wednesday May 29, 2024, at 6:00pm. The meeting is open to the public and any member of the public may participate in the proceedings. Meeting participants will assist in development of a cleanup study, also known as TMDLs, to address benthic impairments for both creeks and a dissolved oxygen impairment for the unnamed tributary to Fleenor Branch in Washington, VA. These two streams have been listed on Virginia’s § 303(d) list of impaired waters for failing to meet Virginia’s water quality standards due to an altered benthic macroinvertebrate community. TMDLs will be developed for sediment and dissolved oxygen, which were identified as probable contributors to the poor health of the stream segments. The meeting will discuss a series of preliminary sediment load allocation scenarios and discuss the process used to establish sediment loads. Information about this study can be found here: In the event of inclement weather, the meeting will be held on June 3, 2024 at the same time and location stated above.
