Tidal James River and Elizabeth River PCB TMDL

Starting in 1993 fish tissue monitoring began on the Elizabeth River and in subsequent years the tidal James River and tributaries. In 2004 VDH issued a fish consumption advisory for the study area. Beginning in 2011 DEQ initiated PCB TMDL development, which included extensive watershed-wide monitoring of ambient and point source contributions. Currently TMDL model development is underway.
