NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
There are 225 waterbodies in CA impaired due to fecal pollution. Current water quality objectives were developed at beaches that received human sources (i.e. point sources), but 83% of the impaired waterbodies are dut to nonpoint and perhaps nonhuman sources. A recent CA study indicated that current fecal indicator bacteria (FIB) standards may not be predictive of swimmer illness.
