Purpose of the meeting
A pre-TMDL Technical Advisory Committee Meeting for the Fryingpan Creek, Pigg River, Poplar Branch, and Beaverdam Creek Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) project. Fryingpan Creek, Pigg River, Poplar Branch, and Beaverdam Creek are located in Franklin, Pittsylvania and Bedford 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 data and process used in identifying the most likely stressor to the watersheds and solicit feedback on the findings from the watershed stakeholders. 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.
