Warming rivers threaten ecosystems and wildlife. Trout, salmon, and other economically and culturally important species depend on cold water to survive and reproduce. A growing number of states are developing plans to address the human activities at the root of this warming: deforestation, urbanization, industrial activities, agricultural practices, and climate change.
On August 11 at 2pm EDT, NEIWPCC’s National 303(d)/TMDL Webinar Series will present a webinar on temperature TMDLs. Jonathan Leiman and Anna Kasko of the Maryland Department of the Environment will discuss their process for developing temperature TMDLs, from monitoring to modeling to implementation. Laurie Mann and Ben Cope of EPA Region 10 will also share their work on temperature TMDLs across the Pacific Northwest.
Register online for the webinar, which is free and open to the public. The webinar will be recorded and will be available online for those who cannot join on August 11.
Since 2016, NEIWPCC, through a grant from EPA, has hosted a series of informational webinars for state, territorial, and tribal program staff working on pollution budgets in impaired waterways under section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act.

All previous webinar recordings, presentations, and supporting material are available in our archives.
