Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) with the express purpose of restoring water quality in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries by identifying the required reduction of pollution loads of nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment reaching the Bay.

This permit allows for the implementation of the agreement between the Commonwealth and EPA. This agreement provided MS4 permittees a phased approach, over three five-year permit cycles, in order to meet requirements of the Chesapeake Bay TMDL conditions of the permit.
