EPA Launches TMDL Program Results Analysis Website

Website provides technical information for TMDL developers, water programs and EPA water quality staff

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a new website to communicate information about Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) program results to technically specialized audiences, including TMDL developers, state water programs, academia, other federal agency programs and EPA water quality staff.

A TMDL is a calculation of the maximum amount of a pollutant that a water body can receive and still meet water quality standards, and an allocation of that load among the various sources of that pollutant.

The TMDL Program Results Analysis Project is a multiyear effort directed at measuring and analyzing programmatic and environmental results of the program.

The website provides a Clean Water Act Impaired Waters Program Pipeline navigation feature, fact sheets, EPA reports and websites, EPA grantee reports and websites, publications and datasets related to this effort.

The TMDL Program Results Analysis website is available at
