When assessments identify a water body that is not meeting adopted water quality standards, the assessment may lead to a determination of impairment, initiating further action such as a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) or other regulatory procedure aimed at addressing the impairment.

Potomac Basin Designated Uses. Maryland – The Potomac River. The Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin (ICPRB) is an agency composed of commissioners representing the federal government, the states of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of ICPRB mission is to enhance, protect, and conserve the water and associated land resources of the Potomac River basin and its tributaries through regional and.

The health of the Chesapeake Bay is largely driven by changes in streamflow and the amount of pollution it contains. The Potomac River has earned its highest grade ever. In a dramatic turnaround for our region's drinking water source, the Potomac's health has improved from an abysmal D to a B in just ten years.

For the first time in generations, we are within reach of enjoying a healthy, thriving Potomac River.

Water-quality assessment of the Potomac River Basin: basin description and analysis of available nutrient data, [Joel D Blomquist; National Water-Quality Assessment Program (U.S.); Geological Survey (U.S.);].

Water-quality constituent loads at the Fall Line stations of the Susquehanna, Potomac, and James Rivers, the three major tributaries to the Chesapeake Bay, can be estimated with reasonable accuracy by regression techniques, especially for wet periods of 1 year or more. Net transport of all nutrient species and most other constituents, especially those found in greatest concentrations.

A recent study of the Upper Potomac River by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science found that improvements in air quality are more closely tied to improvements in water quality than previously thought.
