Donald Yee, Amy Franz, Adam Wong, John Ross | September 14th, 2016

The Regional Monitoring Program for Water Quality in the San Francisco Estuary (RMP) was created to provide longterm monitoring information on ecosystem health in the Estuary. The impetus for the program development was a resolution by the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Board to require dischargers in the Bay Area regulated under the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program to participate in regional monitoring. Contribution to the program constitutes compliance with the requirement to participate. Elimination of certain permit requirements for individual permits offset the requirement for continued participation.
