Watershed Implementation Plans

Monday, January 30, 2012

Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs) are roadmaps for how the District of Columbia can achieve and maintain the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) limits necessary to meet water quality standards for the District's streams and rivers. In other words, they are plans for actions that District government, the private sector and citizens plan to undertake to clean up the District's waters. The District has completed WIPs for the Anacostia River and its tributaries, Oxon Run, and Rock Creek and its tributaries.

The links below are for each tributary’s WIP:

The District has completed draft Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs) for all impaired watersheds in the District and they have all been approved by the EPA.

Please view the Watershed Implementation Plans below.
