    South Carolina assured the USEPA "The State intends to achieve waste load and load allocation reductions in 303(d) listed waters in order to achieve the water quality goals of the Clean Water Act. This includes waters impaired solely or primarily by NPS sources. For each such water, a TMDL will be established that includes specific recommendations for reducing nonpoint Source (NPS) loads. In making these recommendations various pollution control best management practices (6 MPs) will be cited for specific applications. The BMPs recommended will be selected from the total inventory available as described in EPA's "Guidance Specifying Best Management Practices for NPS Control in Coastal Waters" as well as those that have been applied successfully in South Carolina and nation wide. BMPs selected will have been proven effective and in most cases will have data available for pollutant removal efficiencies. Innovative and novel solutions will be considered."(SCDH EC 1 998). Following identification of impaired waters, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) would develop TMDLs and direct EPA's Section 319 funding to implement BMPs for correction of water quality problems.
