Protecting Public Health and the Environment.
Watershed advisory groups (WAGs) provide local public input and guidance to DEQ during the development of water quality improvement plans or "Total Maximum Daily Loads" (TMDLs) for water bodies that fail to meet water quality standards. TMDLs are designed to reduce the levels of pollutants, such as bacteria and sediment, in impaired water bodies.
The Blackfoot River WAG was created to develop and implement a TMDLs to improve water quality in the Blackfoot River Subbasin. The Blackfoot River TMDL: Waterbody Assessment and Total Maximum Daily Load was approved by EPA in April 2002, followed by an addendum addressing temperature in Brush Creek that was approved by EPA in 2007. The WAG met in 2008 and 2009 to conduct a five-year review of subbasin documents.
