Total Maximum Daily Loads
List of TMDLs
and TMDL Alternatives (IR Category 4b)

The following tables are for all currently listed TMDLs in New Mexico: DRAFT, WQCC-Approved, as well as US EPA-Approved versions. The tables are organized first by watershed basin, Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC), then alphabetically by waterbody (e.g., stream name).

Horizontal Line - Divider

Under the federal Clean Water Act, §303(d)(1), states are required to develop a list of waters within the state that are not supporting their designated uses established in the Water Quality Standards (WQS) and to establish a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for each pollutant in those “impaired waters.” A TMDL planning document is a written plan and analysis established to restore a waterbody and to ensure that WQS are maintained for that waterbody. A TMDL includes consideration of existing pollutant loads and reasonably foreseeable increases in pollutant loads. TMDLs are an integral part of New Mexico’s Water Quality Management Plan.

TMDL planning documents have been developed for 57 stream reaches in New Mexico that are still noted as impaired, covering approximately 858 stream miles. Several of these stream reaches have TMDLs for more than one parameter.

Although the majority of assessed lentic (i.e., not flowing) assessment units in New Mexico are of an impaired nature that would normally require TMDL work, New Mexico has not yet begun developing lake TMDLs.  There are over 60,000 acres in 34 waterbodies that will be eventually addressed for restoration through the TMDL process.

Using the Basins List (below) to start your search, available online TMDL documents are listed below first by basin, Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC), and then alphabetically by waterbody (e.g., stream name). Each listing is further categorized by targeted pollutant and by development year. Approval status and accompanying documentation are either listed or linked for each on the far right-hand side.
