If you would like to provide feedback, please email email@example.com by May 1, 2019; Please put “TMDL IP Feedback” in the subject line and please do not include attachments.
- The City of Springfield’s TMDL IP program describes strategies the City will implement to reduce temperature, bacteria, and mercury pollution in the Willamette and McKenzie Rivers. The TMDL program was developed nationally in response to Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act.
- The goal of the City’s TMDL IP is to identify and prioritize measures the City will take to minimize, to the maximum extent practicable, temperature, bacteria, and mercury contributions to surface waters within the jurisdictional control of the City over the next five years. It does not propose ordinances, or establish or limit land use, but focuses on education, inspection, municipal operations, and partnerships to reduce specific sources of contamination within the City’s jurisdiction, and improve water quality.
