Andy Kellie, Professor, Murray State University
Big Bayou Creek and Little Bayou Creek have been listed on the Kentucky 2002 303(d) list of impaired waters. Under the provisions of the Clean Water Act, individual Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) must be developed for each creek. Constituents of concern for Little Bayou Creek include metals and radionuclides. Constituents of concern for Bayou Creek include mercury, radionulcides, and metals. This project will involve the implementation of TMDLs for constituents of concern for both Little Bayou and Big Bayou Creeks.
1. Reduce loadings to Big Bayou and Little Bayou Creeks so as to satisfy the state water quality standards.
1. Quarterly progress reports.
2. Project progress presentation at quarterly meetings.
3. Implementation plan for TMDLs
