A waste load evaluation has been prepared for the Houston Ship Channel system which is comprised of the San Jacinto River Tidal (Segment 1001), the Lower Houston Ship Channel (Segment 1005), the Upper Houston Ship Channel (Segment 1006), the Houston Ship Channel Turning Basin (Segment 1007), Tabbs Bay (Segment 2426), San Jacinto Bay (Segment 2427), Black Duck Bay (Segment 2428), Scott Bay (Segment 2429), Burnett Bay (Segment 2430), and Barbours Cut (Segment 2436) pursuant to Section 35.1521-4(a) of Title 40 of the 1981 Code of Federal Regulations. The purpose of this study is to define wastewater treatment levels that will result in the stream segment meeting applicable stream standards. The water quality parameter evalueated in this analysis is dissolved oxygen. Waste load projections and recommended treatment levels are based on information that was available as of December 31, 1982.
