Thank you for your submittal of the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) documents that address biological impairments in Allen, Indian, Sunderland, and Munroe Brooks. These waterbodies are included on Vermont’s 2006 303(d) list and were prioritized for TMDL development. The purpose of these TMDLs is to address aquatic life use impairments caused by stormwater runoff. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hereby approves Vermont’s June, 2008 versions of the four TMDLs (for Allen, Indian, Sunderland, and Munroe Brooks) submitted with a cover letter dated June 19, 2008. EPA has determined that these TMDLs meet the requirements of §303(d) of the Clean Water Act (CWA), and of EPA’s implementing regulations (40 CFR Part 130). A copy of our approval documentation is enclosed. Thank you again for your submittal. My staff and I look forward to continued cooperation with the VT DEC in exercising our shared responsibility of implementing the requirements under Section 303(d) of the CWA. Sincerely, /s
