Notes:
1The total WLA can be increased prior to modification provided that the Department of Environmental Quality tracks these changes for bacteria TMDLs where the permit is consistent with water quality standards for bacteria.

2There were no point source dischargers in the modeled TMDL area.

B. Stream segment classifications, effluent limitations including water quality based effluent limitations, and wasteload allocations.

9VAC25-720-70 Rappahannock Area Development Commission (RADCO) 208 Area Wide Waste Treatment Management Plan and Potomac-Shenandoah River Basin 303(e) Water Quality Management Plan is included in The Potomac River Basin section.

C. Nitrogen and phosphorus wasteload allocations to restore the Chesapeake Bay and its tidal rivers.

The following table presents nitrogen and phosphorus wasteload allocations for the identified significant dischargers and the total nitrogen and total phosphorus wasteload allocations for the listed facilities.
