Write a watershed plan to help guide implementation.
If you’re responding to a TMDL, your end product is a “Watershed-Based Management Plan.” To make your efforts eligible for potential funding from the Clean Water Act, this plan has to cover 9 elements listed by the EPA. This is not a mandate, however, to make the plan massive and impenetrable. The document can take a wide variety of forms, and our feeling is that shorter is better. Since an IC-TMDL is somewhat of a different beast, we have annotated the 9 elements with respect to how they relate to an IC-TMDL.
Below are a few documents that might help you organize your plan:
Sample outline of plan (based on the Eagleville Brook plan)
