Final TMDLs Approved by EPA: Swan Creek

Swan Creek is in Harford County, Maryland, approximately 4 miles south of the mouth of Susquehanna River. The lower portion of Swan Creek is a small shallow tidal embayment. Swan Creek (02130706) was identified on the State’s 1996 list of Water Quality Limited Segments (WQLSs) as impaired by excess nutrients and suspended sediments. This document proposes to establish Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for the nutrients nitrogen and phosphorus in Swan Creek. The suspended sediment impairment will be addressed at later date.
