The James River Water Development District hopes to reinstate the Total Daily Maximum Load Program to last another year.  District Manager, Dave Bartel, says they have several projects underway under the current TMDL.

 

He says the passage of a Farm Bill has helped the program.

 

 

The purpose of the TMDL project is to reduce the nutrient, sediment, and bacteria loads of the James River and all tributaries and lakes within the water shed.

 

The James River Board meets today in Yankton, 9am at the Kelly Inn.
