The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is proposing a statewide Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for inland lakes impacted by atmospheric deposition of PCBs. The TMDL is required under Section 303(d) of the federal Clean Water Act. A draft of the TMDL document is available on the DEQ’s Surface Water Assessment Section website.
A meeting will be held to discuss the development of the TMDL, the process, and associated activities in Lansing on Wednesday, February 6 at 1:00pm at the Michigan Library and Historical Center in The Forum (702 W. Kalamazoo St., Lansing, MI). Questions can be directed to Marcy Knoll, Aquatic Biologist with the DEQ Water Resources Division at (517) 335-7360.
