§ 3929.5. Aptos Creek Watershed Total Maximum Daily Loads and Implementation Plan for Fecal Coliform, Domestic Animal Waste Discharge Prohibition, and Human Fecal Material Discharge Prohibition.
On May 8, 2009, the Regional Water Quality Control Board, Central Coast Region (Central Coast Water Board) adopted Resolution No. R3-2009-0025, amending the Water Quality Control Plan for the Central Coast Region. The State Water Resources Control Board approved the amendment under Resolution No. 2010-0038, on August 3, 2010.
Resolution No. R3-2009-0025 establishes Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for fecal coliform in the Aptos Creek, Valencia Creek, and Trout Gulch (Aptos Creek Watershed), and adds the Aptos Creek Watershed to the Basin Plan's human fecal material discharge prohibition and domestic animal waste discharge prohibition.
The Central Coast Water Board set wasteload and load allocations for subwatersheds, and numeric targets for receiving waters based on the Basin Plan water quality objectives for fecal coliform in waters supporting body contact recreation. Implementation of the TMDLs relies on compliance by non-point source dischargers with prohibitions against the discharge of domestic animal waste and human fecal material. Responsible parties will need to demonstrate compliance with the prohibitions through reporting to the Central Coast Water Board or its Executive Officer. Additionally, the Central Coast Water Board will rely upon existing NPDES permits and Waste Discharge Requirements to ensure that implementing parties carry out implementation actions.
Central Coast Water Board staff will conduct triennial reviews of implementation actions, monitoring results, and evaluations submitted by responsible parties of their progress toward achieving their allocations. Triennial reviews will continue until the water quality objectives are achieved. The compliance schedule for achieving the TMDLs and the numeric target for fecal coliform concentration is 13 years after the TMDLs are approved by the Office of Administrative Law.
