Water Quality Standards Academy Posts New "TMDL" Module

Online module addresses development of pollutant loading analyses

The Water Quality Standards Academy Online (WQSA Online) has posted its second Basic Course Supplemental Topics Module, “Listing Impaired Waters and Developing TMDLs.”

The new online module addresses the identification and prioritization of impaired or threatened waters by states and tribes, and the development of pollutant loading analyses with a focus on meeting the state's/tribe's water quality standards. Similar to the Key Concepts modules, the Supplemental Topics Modules present text-based information across a sequence of pages that include links to further information and resources, and then a brief quiz at the end. Because these modules are supplemental, they are not associated with the Certificate of Completion earned by completing the Key Concepts modules.
