Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division (EPD) is charged with developing and implementing Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for waters placed on the state’s biennial list of impaired waters (CWA Section 303(d) List). The requirements for this activity are based in the federal Clean Water Act (CWA), and are passed through to EPD as part of its biennial Performance Partnership Agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This paper briefly describes how the TMDL process impacts issuance of municipal and industrial National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits based on TMDLs calculated for individual impaired waters.
