The State of Georgia s water quality standards are intended to provide protection for designated uses.
TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load) targets are based on these water quality standards. In cases where
numeric water quality standards are not available, narrative standards are used for developing TMDLs.
These narrative standards cannot be allocated, hence, there is a need to link the narrative standards to
pollutant loads generated from the watershed.
