Wasteload Allocations for Volatile Organics and Toxicity: Phase I TMDLs for Toxic Pollutants in the Delaware River Estuary



In October 1996, the Delaware River Basin Commission adopted amendments to Articles 3 and 4 of its Water Quality Regulations regarding the control of toxic pollutants from point sources discharges to the Delaware River between Trenton, New Jersey and Delaware Bay. These regulations allows the Commission to establish wasteload allocations where necessary to meet the stream quality objectives for toxic pollutants. This report culminates Phase 1 of a phased Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) approach to controlling toxic pollutants in this section of the river. Phase 2 of this approach will focus on loadings from both point and non-point sources.This report was prepared by the Delaware River Basin Commission staff: Gerald M. Hansler, Executive Director. Dr. Thomas J. Fikslin, Director of the Commission's Estuary Toxics Management Program and Jason Tsai, Water Resources Engineer/Modeler were the principal authors of the report. Significant contributions were also made by Dr. Namsoo Suk, Water Resources Engineer/Modeler and Dave Wilcox
