Incorporating Climate Change into Stream Temperature TMDLs

The next webinar in the National 303(d) Restoring Our Impaired Waters Webinar Series will focus on the role of climate change in temperature total maximum daily loads (TMDLs). The event is scheduled for July 11, 1-2 p.m. EST via Zoom. 

The webinar will cover the importance of including climate change impacts in stream temperature TMDLs in Washington’s South Fork Nooksack River. Presenter James Kardouni will illustrate how this approach allows for collaboration, which can lead to broader water management strategies such as Endangered Species Act recovery actions.  

Kardouni is the water quality lead for the state of Washington’s Department of Ecology’s Environmental Assessment Program. In this role, he also serves as the TMDL lead in the Nooksack River basin and San Juan Islands.

Webinar on Incorporating Climate Change into Stream Temperature TMDLs

Since 2016, NEIWPCC, through a grant from the EPA, has hosted a series of informational webinars for state, territorial, and tribal program staff working on TMDLs in impaired waterways under Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act.

Past webinars feature presentations from a diverse array of experts on topics ranging from state-tribe communications to impervious cover impairments. All previous webinar recordings are available in our resource library. To propose a topic for a future webinar, submit an abstract here.
