Implementation of the TMDL is the final step. it requires participation form all the stake holders as TMDL's are not self implementing. The Waste Load Allocation portion of the TMDL can be implemented through effluent limits in discharge permits. In the case of non-point sources, voluntary controls or locally enacted controls are necessary to implement the Load Allocations. The State must rely on authority already granted by the Clean Water Act to implement TMDL's.
