Description Federal law requires states to identify sources of pollution in waters that fail to meet state water quality standards, and to develop Water Cleanup Plans to address those pollutants. The Water Cleanup Plan, sometimes called a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), establishes limits on pollutants that can be discharged to the water body and still allow state standards to be met.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
