TULSA, OK, March 2, 2005 -- PennWell Books announces the upcoming publication of "Total Maximum Daily Load: Approaches & Challenges."

The new book, edited by Tamim Younos, interim director of the Virginia Water Resources Research Center and a senior research scientist at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, presents concepts, approaches, case studies, and applications of the cutting-edge technologies used to develop and implement an effective and innovative total maximum daily load (TMDL) management program.

Case studies discussed in this book mostly focus on three major causes of water impairment in the United States: bacteria, sediments, and nutrients. The book has nine chapters written by experts who have significant knowledge and experience on issues related to the TMDL program:
-- Chapters 1-3 introduce the readers to TMDL regulations, approaches, and stakeholder involvement.
-- Chapters 4-6 provide an overview of unique case studies and strategies.
-- Chapters 7-9 go beyond the traditional TMDL approach and discuss innovative and alternative approaches, i.e. effluent trading, adaptive management, and use attainability analysis.
