This notice announces the availability of a DRAFT Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) document proposed by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) to address the following waterbody:

Honeoye Lake, Ontario County
Honeoye Lake is impaired for phosphorus. 

States are required by Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (US EPA) implementing regulations (40CFR Part 130) to develop TMDL plans for waterbodies and pollutants where water quality standards are not being met.

Honeoye Lake is one of the New York State Governor's 12 Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Priority Lakes. The HABs Action Plan and the TMDL are aligned. As part of the strategy to alleviate HABs in the Lake, NYS DEC has retained a contractor to develop Aeration and Nutrient Inactivation Plans to be implemented in the Lake.

A Public Meeting to discuss the findings of the TMDL and to answer questions will be held as follows:

Date: February 4, 2019
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Honeoye Central School Auditorium
8528 Main Street
Honeoye, NY 14471

TMDL Comments can be mailed or e-mailed to the contact listed above by the close of business February 19, 2019.
