Notice of Request for Initial Proposals for Projects to be Funded from the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Allocation (CFDA 66.436 - Surveys, Studies, Investigations Grants and Cooperative Agreements for Water Quality Projects authorized by the Clean Water Act, Section 104(b)). EPA is soliciting initial proposals to implement one of Region 7's water quality initiatives. A TMDL is the sum of the allowable loads of a single pollutant from all contributing point and non-point sources. The TMDL calculation must include a margin of safety to ensure that the water body can be used for the purposes the State has designated. The calculation must also account for seasonal variation in water quality. Federal funds are available for projects that lead to the completion of a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) or contribute toward the development of a TMDL or multiple TMDLs under Section 104 (b)(3) of the Clean Water Act.
