Public notices for water restoration reports and meetings, cleanup plans, and regulation changes.

Some of Virginia's waters that have impaired water quality require a cleanup plan under federal regulations. The Department of Environmental Quality first develops reports that describe the amount of pollution waters can contain and still have high water quality. This pollution amount is a total maximum daily load, called a TMDL on this web site. DEQ then develops a cleanup plan for the impaired waters to restore and maintain their water quality.
