For Non-Urban Land Managers

TMDL Performance Measures

Non-Urban Source Categories' accomplishments are tracked and reported using a set of six TMDL Performance Measures (TMDL PMs) selected based on their relevance to lake clarity, their alignment with existing reporting efforts in the Tahoe Basin, and the feasibility of data collection. Links included with the TMDL PMs below provide tracking and reporting guidance, key definitions and informative context for Non-Urban Implementing Partners to accurately track and report TMDL PMs to the EIP Project Tracker. Prefix numbers relate to performance measures list on the EIP Project Tracker, which also contains additional details and reporting guidance.


       4 -   Parcels With Stormwater Retrofits 

       5 -   Miles of Roads Decommissioned or Retrofitted *

       7 -   Linear Feet of Stream Channel Restored or Enhanced

       35 - Miles of Roads Inspected and Maintained

       36 - Miles of Roads Created

       37 - Acres of Disturbed Area Restored or Enhanced


         * Formerly titled Miles of Roads Treated; changed for consistency with EIP PMs


In contrast to accomplishment tracking and reporting for the Urban Uplands Source Category, TMDL PMs only quantify the extent to which activities are implemented, not the pollutant load reductions associated with these activities.
