Impervious Cover TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load)

From CLEAR's CT NEMO Program

The Eagleville Brook TMDL was developed as a way to deal with streams impaired by poorly understood urbanization-related impacts. Its location is the Eagleville Brook, a small watershed in northeastern Connecticut that drains much of the University of Connecticut campus. The project's website contains information on this ongoing project, including a small collection of random videos created by the CT NEMO group about the Eagleville Brook IC TMDL project. The IC-TMDL Project is a partnership of the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, the University of Connecticut, and the Town of Mansfield, Connecticut.
