§ 3919.6. San Francisco Bay PCBs TMDL.
Resolution R2-2008-0012, adopted February 13, 2008, by the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board (Water Board) amended the Water Quality Control Plan for the San Francisco Bay Region (Basin Plan). The Basin Plan amendment establishes the allowable annual total polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) load (Total Maximum Daily Load [TMDL]) to San Francisco Bay, and actions and monitoring necessary to implement the TMDL.
The TMDL sets a numeric concentration-based target for total polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), in fish tissue in San Francisco Bay. The target is based on protecting human health risk associated with consumption of recreationally-caught PCBs-contaminated San Francisco Bay fish and protection of wildlife.
The TMDL will mainly be implemented through National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) industrial and municipal wastewater permits and storm water permits, including the Regional Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems permit, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) permit, 401 water quality certifications issued for navigational dredging activities, and through the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Water Code section 13267.
