Beth Dillon
Water Quality Chemist
Susquehanna River Basin Commission


By now almost everyone has heard of a TMDL, but what does it really mean for your watershed?  Join us to learn the history, the processes involved in TMDL development, and where these fit into the Pennsylvania watershed planning arena.  TMDLs can be a useful tool for your watershed.  This presentation will teach you how to read and extract information from a TMDL and how to leverage a one for funding reclamation projects in locality.


Beth Dillon has been an employee of the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) for over five years as a member of the Watershed Assessment and Protection Division. She started at SRBC as a Water Quality Chemist, but has since served as a Project Manager for Water Quality Monitoring for TMDL Development and most recently as a Water Quality Program Specialist and as the lead for the West Branch Susquehanna River AMD Remediation Strategy. Before her employment with SRBC, Beth worked as an Americorps member of the Cambria County Conservation District as a GIS Technician. Beth has nine years experience in the AMD monitoring, assessment, and planning arenas. AMD remediation has been her career focus and personal passion since her first independent research project in college at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. Beth works for SRBC from a home satellite office in northern Somerset County where she lives with her husband Michael Kern and boxer puppy Gwendolyn.
