Implementing TMDLs and Trading Through the National Estuary Program
Sponsored by: U.S. EPA Office of Wetlands, Oceans, & Watersheds, Watershed Academy
Original Time/Date of Presentation:

February 21, 2007, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM, EST (18:00-20:00 GMT)

Presentation Overview:

The National Estuary Program (NEP), established as part of the 1987 amendments to the Clean Water Act, is proud to be celebrating its 20th anniversary of protecting and restoring estuaries of national significance. The program promotes comprehensive planning efforts and actions to help protect 28 designated estuaries deemed to be threatened by pollution, development, or overuse. The NEP uses a proven approach of: focusing on specific watersheds, using science to inform decision-making, emphasizing collaborative problem solving, and involving the public. This Webcast will provide an overview of the NEP and will show how it implements another key Clean Water Act program - the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) program. It will include a case study of the Long Island Sound NEP, which has successfully used its Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) as the basis for developing a TMDL. The Webcast will also discuss the innovative trading program used in Long Island Sound that is reducing nitrogen loads faster and more cost effectively.
