Last week, the OMA submitted comments on the Maumee River Watershed TMDL Drafting Loading Analysis Plan. The OMA stressed that point sources, such as manufacturers, comprise a fraction of the total phosphorus load in the watershed, and that any successful TMDL must be geared towards non-point sources.
The OMA participated in a meeting earlier this week with Ohio EPA staff to discuss point sources and the role they will play in any potential final TMDL plan. If your company is either a direct or indirect discharger in northwest Ohio, you may be impacted by the TMDL. To engage on this issue or learn more, contact the OMA’s Rob Brundrett. 10/28/2021
