Abstract Deep Creek Lake is an impoundment in the Youghiogheny River Watershed (basin code 05-02-02-03) in Garrett County, Maryland. Deep Creek Lake was identified on the State of Marylands draft 2002 list of Water Quality Limited Segments (303(d) list) as impaired by mercury contamination, based on data for mercury concentrations in fish tissue. Concentrations in the water are well below the threshold for concern in regard to drinking water. The Maryland water quality standards Surface Water Use Designation (Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR for Deep Creek Lake is Use III-P - Natural Trout Waters and Public Water Supply. The Maryland Department of the Environments (MDE) current public fish consumption advisory to eat limited amounts of fish from Deep Creek Lake is not supportive of the recreational fishing use. Therefore, this document proposes to establish a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for mercury in Deep Creek Lake.
