Purpose of the meeting
Background: The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality will host the third Technical Advisory Committee Meeting for the Lynch and Reed Creek Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) project on February 17, 2021 from 1:00- 3:00 p.m. Lynch and Reed Creeks are located Campbell and Pittsylvania Counties and are listed on the 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report as impaired due to violations of Virginia’s water quality standards for the General Standard (Benthics). Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and §62.1-44.19:7.C of the Code of Virginia requires DEQ to develop TMDLs for pollutants responsible for each impaired water contained in Virginia’s 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report. The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and its contractors, Wetland Studies and Solutions Inc. and JMU will discuss the equations calculated for Lynch and Reed Creek and allocation scenarios to reduce the pollutant (sediment) in the watersheds. This meeting is an opportunity for local residents to learn about the condition of these streams, share information about the area, and become involved in the process of local water quality improvement.
