Report of Waste Discharge (ROWD)

As part of the WQIP Longer-Term TMDL Goals, regional Copermittees have completed special studies on bacteria, such as how bacteria levels occur naturally in the environment and may relate to surfer health. These studies were presented to the San Diego Water Board in the Report of Waste Discharge (submitted in December 2017) as part of the TMDL reopener process, in which TMDL standards will be reevaluated in light of the most recent science.
