2014 Selenium TMDL Workshops

In 2009, working documents of the TMDL staff report and Basin Plan Amendment were prepared, but due to numerous scientific, legal and economic challenges, the TMDL development process was halted. Since then, Regional Board staff has continued to work with stakeholders and other regulatory and resource agencies to identify solutions to these challenges. To this end, a series of three workshops will be held to provide an opportunity for focused discussion on remaining issues. These workshops will form the basis for the NSMP stakeholders, acting as a third-party with consultant support, to assist the Regional Board in completing the staff report and Basin Plan Amendment by mid-2014. Regional Board staff intends to bring the selenium TMDLs forward for consideration by the Regional Board by the end of 2014.

The public notice, which is available on the Regional Board’s Selenium TMDL website as well, can be accessed here.
