Hydrologic Group D

West Virginia Hydrologic Group D is one of five groups the 32 major watersheds in the state are divided into (Groups A - E).

Current Work in Group D

Pre-TMDL development monitoring began in the Little Kanawha Watershed (minus Hughes River, which had TMDLs approved in 2018) in July of 2019. Monitoring will continue at selected sites through June 2020. See the newly developed StoryMap for TMDL Development in the Little Kanawha River Watershed.

TMDLs for the Hughes River and tributaries and the Monongahela River mainstem were finalized and approved in 2018 - see below for details.
