§ 2917. Water Quality Control Policy for Addressing Impaired Waters: Regulatory Structure and Options.
Regional Water Quality Control Boards (Regional Water Boards) have wide latitude, numerous options, and some legal constraints that apply when determining how to address impaired waters. Irrespective of whether Clean Water Act section 303(d) requires a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), the process for addressing waters that do not meet applicable standards must be accomplished through existing regulatory tools and mechanisms. This policy outlines those tools and mechanisms, and explains how the federal requirement to establish TMDLs fits within those confines. This policy also establishes a certification process whereby the Regional Water Boards can formally recognize regulatory or nonregulatory actions of other entities as appropriate implementation programs when the Regional Water Boards determine those actions will result in attainment of standards.
