Document Description
The Basin Plan Amendment includes: (a) site-specific water quality objectives (SSOs) for copper in all segments of San Francisco Bay excluding South San Francisco Bay; (b) defined ratios of total to dissolved copper (translators) for calculating effluent limits for wastewater sources; (c) a Bay-wide implementation strategy that includes required studies to address technical uncertainties, mandatory effluent limits for all municipal and industrial wastewater dischargers, and control measures for major sources of copper; and (d) an ambient water quality monitoring program designed to detect small changes in dissolved copper concentrations in the Bay that may trigger additional control measures.
