Statewide TMDL Policy Committee

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, in collaboration with the Oregon Department of Agriculture, Oregon Department of Forestry, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Water Resources Department and Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, has formed a Statewide TMDL Policy Committee to obtain stakeholder input on policy matters related to the development and implementation of TMDLs and on water quality standards issues related to TMDLs.

 TMDLs are plans that calculate the maximum amount of a pollutant that a waterbody can receive and still meet water quality standards. When TMDLs are implemented it is expected that the waterbody would achieve water quality standards due to reduction of pollutant loads from sources derived from human activities. The agencies will use the committee’s input to help shape policies and set priorities for their TMDL work, especially pertaining to implementation-ready TMDLs.
