New Handbook on Weighing
in on TMDLs is Available:
June 19, 2001
The Clean Water Network has just released a new Total Maximum Daily Load
(TMDL) handbook for activists ,Äì The Ripple Effect: How to make
waves in the turbulent world of watershed cleanup plans. The Ripple Effect
is designed to help citizens get involved in the development and implementation
of TMDLs. The handbook walks you through the cleanup plan process
and suggests questions to ask, policy and technical issues to raise, organizing
and media tactics to try, and more.
Hard copies of the handbook are FREE for Clean Water Network members...spread
them far and wide! Copies are $10 each for non-members. Bulk orders
(i.e. more than 50) will be considered individually. To order your
copies, contact Merritt Frey at [email protected]
or 208-345-7776. Alternatively, find
the handbook in a downloadable, pdf format at www.cwn.org
in the impaired waters section.
Thanks to the nearly 40 members of the TMDL work group who reviewed and
greatly improved this handbook!
NOTE: For those of you who tentatively ordered copies of this
handbook in April/May, I'll be contacting you shortly to see if you still
would like the same number of handbooks.
