Raton Creek Watershed TMDLs public comment period through 11/14/11

The SWQB invites the public to comment on the draft “total maximum daily load” (TMDL) document for the Raton Creek Watershed.

Draft TMDLs in the document include E.coli and plant nutrients for Raton Creek. A TMDL is a planning document that establishes specific goals to meet water quality standards in waterbodies where pollutant limits are exceeded.  It includes current pollution loadings, reduction estimates for pollutants, information on probable sources of pollution, and suggestions to restore or protect the health of the waterbody.  The TMDL and Public Notice are available online in the “what’s new” column:
The 30-day comment period on this document opens October 12, 2011 and will close November 14, 2011 at 4:00 p.m. MST.  The SWQB plans to request approval of the draft final TMDLs at the Water Quality Control Commission’s (WQCC) regularly scheduled meeting in January 2012.
