Final TMDLs Approved by EPA: Adkins Pond

Adkins Pond is an impoundment located in southeastern Wicomico County, Maryland.  The water overflows the dam into Adkins Race, a tributary to the Pocomoke River.  Adkins Pond is used as a recreational facility for boating and fishing with an adjacent picnic area.

On the basis of water quality problems associated with nutrients and sediments, Adkins Pond, in the Pocomoke River watershed (02130203) was identified on Maryland’s 1998 list of water quality limited segments (WQLSs) as being impaired.  The document available below establishes Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for the nutrient phosphorus and sediments entering Adkins Pond.
