OMA Submits Comments Regarding Maumee TMDL

On Aug. 17, the OMA submitted these comments to Ohio EPA in response to the agency’s draft Preliminary Modeling Results (PMR) for the Maumee Watershed Nutrient Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) project.

The PMR report is the fourth step in Ohio EPA’s five-step process that’s required when the agency is implementing a TMDL. The PMR evaluates sources of phosphorus in the Maumee watershed, describes Ohio EPA’s methods for evaluating loads and allocations, and proposes total phosphorus load allocations for applicable facilities. 8/18/2022
