The impairments are based on surface waters not meeting the Basin plan narrative water quality objectives for toxicity and pesticides. Resolution No. R3-2016-0003 established total maximum daily loads numeric targets, and implementation plan for sediment toxicity and pyrethroid pesticides in sediment in the Lower Salinas River watershed.
