Document Description
On June 13, 2018, the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board adopted Resolution No. R2-2018-0027, amending the Water Quality Control Plan for the San Francisco Bay Region (Basin Plan). The amendment establishes a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for sediment in the Pescadero-Butano Watershed and an implementation plan to achieve the TMDL and related habitat enhancement goals. On December 11, 2018, the State Water Resources Control Board approved the amendment under Resolution No. 2018-0058. Office of Administrative Law approved the regulatory action on May 21, 2019. The amendment establishes a sediment TMDL equal to 125 percent of natural background sediment load, numeric targets for sediment, and numeric targets for habitat conditions. The TMDL allocations and implementation plan are designed to achieve the TMDL and related habitat enhancement goals. The implementation plan requires implementing parties to take actions to address sources of sediment in the watershed, including parks and open space, country roads, and agricultural, grazing, and timberlands. The implementation plan also includes recommended, not required habitat enhancement actions to improve aquatic habitat for endangered species.
