It is important to consider water quality and TMDL status when renewing/developing environmental permits and conducting land use planning. To make surface water quality information more readily available to interested stakeholders, Maryland provides on-line access and a user defined query of the State’s Integrated Report of Surface Water Quality. MDE hopes that by providing such information, municipalities, county governments, researchers/academia, volunteer monitoring groups, private industry, and interested citizens will consider water quality when setting local priorities, implementing best management practices, conducting research projects, developing watershed plans, and formulating master plans and zoning initiatives.
