§ 3919.2. Disposal of Dredged Sediment in San Francisco Bay.
On June 19, 2001, the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board adopted two resolutions, which together implement the Long-Term Management Strategy for the Disposal of Dredged Materials in the San Francisco Bay Region (LTMS). The LTMS provides for a phased-in reduction of the volume of dredged sediment disposed of in the San Francisco Bay, while increasing both disposal at a deep ocean disposal site and beneficial reuse of dredged sediment.
Resolution No. 01-064 amends Chapters 4 and 5 of the Water Quality Control Plan for the San Francisco Bay Region to implement LTMS consistent with the 2001 LTMS Management Plan. The amendment sets a long-term overall goal for reducing in-Bay disposal of dredged material at designated disposal sites to one million cubic yards or less per year, to be attained in a step-wise manner over a 12-year period.
Resolution No. 01-065 adopts the guidelines contained in the 1998 Inland Testing Manual and local implementation procedures developed through the Dredged Material Management Office (DMMO) as the appropriate framework for evaluating the suitability of dredged material for disposal at in-Bay disposal sites, recognizes the success of DMMO as a review body for dredging and disposal projects in the Bay, and directs staff to continue to participate in this group. In addition, Resolution No. 01-065 rescinds outdated Resolution Nos. 80-10, 87-53, and 93-009.
