Keywords:   TMDL impacts, Electric Power Industry, atmospheric deposition

The results of a nationwide review of TMDLs (Total Maximum Daily Load) are presented that identify the regional distribution and variation of TMDLs, the target parameters addressed, the potential impacts of TMDLs on the electric power industry, and the different approaches that have been taken by various parties to develop TMDLs. The paper reviews TMDLs that have been developed for sources of pollutants (such as mercury) from atmospheric deposition, highlighting the difficulties in developing such TMDLs and the impact of these TMDLs on the Electric Power Industry.
