Here you can review the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) document for the James River and Tributaries @ Richmond. The TMDL set the pollution budget for bacteria, indicated what the bacteria sources are in the watershed, and how much bacteria should be reduced to meet the recreation use (swimming) water quality standard. The Implementation Plan (IP) for the James River @ Richmond was developed using the TMDL as a guide in order to determine and quanitfy the best management practices necessary to meet the standard.
