Document Description
The Regional Water Board has issued a Clean Water Act Section 401 water quality certification/Waste Discharge Requirements (Order) for USACE's continued maintenance dredging operations in San Francisco Bay for the period of 2015-2019. To avoid in-Bay fish entrainment, the Order requires a reduction in the use of hydraulic hopper dredging equipment in 2017. A statement of overriding consideration was adopted for the two-year period when fish species may be impacted. After this period, the project impacts are less-than significant. Mitigation measures to avoid, minimize and mitigated fish entrainment are required during the initial two-year phase-out period.
