Mile (miles)
TMDL Performance Measure that tracks the amount of paved and unpaved roads in the Forest Uplands that Non Urban Implementing Partners have retrofitted or decommissioned to reduce stormwater runoff pollution impacts. Retrofitting roads includes: (1) implementing source control and/or other BMPs to minimize stormwater runoff volumes and associated sediment and nutrient loading to down gradient surface waters; and/or (2) roadway realignment to protect sensitive environment resources from pollutant loading impacts. Roads are decommissioned when they have been removed from the managed road system, are no longer available for use, and significant elements of the road that unnaturally reroute hillslope drainage or present slope stability and/or erosion and sediment delivery issues have been mitigated.

IMPORTANT: This TMDL PM is a subset of and reported through the EIP PM Miles of Roads Decommissioned or Retrofitted. Operations and maintenance activities of previously retrofitted or decommissioned roads should not be reported under this PM; such activities are reported under the Forest Roads Inspected and Maintained PM.

No monitoring programs are yet associated with this indicator.

Note: The TMDL Program tracks and reports implementation progress for the Urban Uplands Source Category through a quantitative pollutant load reduction approach. Given the relative magnitude of the pollutant load contribution as well as the additional cost and complexity associated with this approach, Non-Urban Source Category implementation progress is  tracked and reported using an activity-based approach. More information on TMDL tracking and reporting is available on the Lake Clarity Tracker.
