I.  Overview

This page discusses the Rogue Basin TMDL and provides an overview of what it is, the roles and responsibilities in meeting the TMDL, and activities the Rogue Basin Designated Management Agencies are implementing to meet the TMDL and improve water quality in the Rogue Basin.

Water quality is regulated under the Clean Water Act and protection for water quality includes the TMDL program.  In December 2008, the Environmental Protection Agency approved the Rogue Basin TMDL for temperature and bacteria.  As part of the TMDL, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality developed a water quality management plan (WQMP) that outlines steps the region needs to take to meet the targeted water quality conditions.  In the WQMP, calculated pollutant loadings and subsequent management responsibilities are divided up among all sectors contributing to the pollution loads to the creek (Figure 1.1).

Program (Matrix)

Year 1 activities have been completed for the City. The focus of the first year of implementation was on inventorying existing programs, utilizing existing resources, and capacity building for future years. Accomplishments include monitoring streams and storm drains for bacteria, participating in regional TMDL meetings, and education and outreach activities. The program was conducted by the City Staff in conjunction with the Rogue Valley Council of Governments.

Year 2 activities include:

Activity Report

Completed. Was submitted to DEQ in September and be made available when completed. Activities that have been completed during the implementation year (July 1st through June 30th) are being detailed in a reporting matrix.

Public Resources

Resource List - A major goal of the TMDL program is to increase awareness of the community through education, outreach, and community participation. A specific goal of Grants Pass's plan was to prepare a resource list for the public and to provide information on bacteria and links to resources and stormwater information.

Educational Materials - Jumps down to the bottom of the page for links to local brochures on stormwater, water quality, wetlands, and streams.

General Information of Stormwater - Link to RVCOG's Stormwater 101 site which contains a comprensive overview of what stormwater is, why it's a problem, sotmwater impacts, how it's managed, and links to resources.
