SHELL1.10: Support TMDL work and water cleanup plans to limit pollution and determine water quality strategies
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Support implementation of Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) studies and other necessary water cleanup plans for Puget Sound to set pollution discharge limits and determine response strategies to address water quality impairments.
Desired Outcome - TMDLs are implemented, water quality is improved.
Policy Needs, Example Actions, Proposal Guidance - This approach helps support marine and fresh water quality through development and implementation of TMDL studies or local pollution control plans that identify pollution sources and corrective actions to address identified problems. The TMDL process complements other strategies to control sources and pathways of excess nutrients and toxic chemicals from entering Puget Sound. The priority focus is on implementation of TMDLs, not development of TMDLs.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
