Abstract : PRESENTATION OUTLINE: Background -- Chesapeake Bay Watershed, Regulatory Drivers, Upcoming Regulatory Deadlines, Project Genesis; Army TMDL Pilot Overview, Technical Components, Path Forward -- Facilities TMDL Gap Analysis (Complete), including Approach, Activities Completed, and Findings; TMDL Baseline Assessment (Complete), including Approach, Activities Completed, and Findings; Watershed Implementation Plan Model and TMDL Monitoring Strategy (Ongoing); Guidebook and Training Development/Delivery (Future); and Discussion. In response to TMDL development, Army facilities will need to work with the regulatory community to establish their individual nutrient and sediment load allocations, and be prepared to provide information regarding existing and proposed storm water pollution control practices and procedures to the regulatory community during the development of Watershed Implementation Plans. The purpose of this task is to build a model in the form of a roadmap for Army facilities to use in developing the documentation that will be required under the future Chesapeake Bay TMDL Program, and provide that model as a transferable process and guidance document that uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to compile land cover data in coordination with current EPA TMDL modeling and a prioritization of storm water pollution control practices for Army point and nonpoint sources. Army Facilities included in pilot: Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD; Fort A.P. Hill, VA; Fort Belvoir, VA; Fort Detrick, MD; Fort Indiantown Gap Army National Guard (ARNG), PA; Fort Meade, MD; Letterkenny Army Depot, PA; and Scranton Army Ammunition Plant; PA.
