(This amendment provides $500,000 for DEQ's Total Maximum Daily Load Program (TMDL). TMDLs are required by the federal Clean Water Act and by state statute. TMDLs are standards for pollutants, and represent the maximum amount of discharge that can be made into any "impaired" segment of Virginia's waterways. Some 648 TMDLs must be developed in Virginia. Along with each TMDL standard, a plan for ending the violation of these standards in state waters must also be developed. If Virginia does not establish the TMDLs, then EPA will do so.)
