Impaired Waters Symposium 2011: Spanning the Water Quality Continuum – From Standards to TMDLs
Hilton Miami Downtown
Conference: January 12 – 13, 2011
Over the past few years, the water quality continuum in the Clean Water Act has become increasingly complex. EPA and states are grappling with new and more stringent numeric water quality standards for parameters like nutrients, mercury and conductivity. State assessment and listing decisions have resulted in the identification of tens of thousands of impaired waters. Court-ordered deadlines have forced states and EPA regions to develop TMDLs for those waters on an expedited basis and more frequently on a watershed scale. And growing sophistication in monitoring and modeling has made the detection of pollutants and sources achievable at unprecedented levels of precision and scale.
With progress comes new challenges and opportunities in terms of implementation and tracking improvement. The Impaired Waters Symposia brought together practitioners from around the globe to discuss these new challenges and opportunities in terms of implementation and tracking improvements of water quality while focusing on the water quality continuum in the Clean Water Act.
This symposium provided valuable information for regulators, technology developers, municipal agencies, and others seeking to understand the full picture of the latest developments and practical experiences on this important topic. Supporting organizations included the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Advisory Committee on Water Information, and the Water Environment Research Foundation.
