The Regional Boards Sediment Work Plan – Basin Plan Amendment is now out for review.

Actions are included to address issue on impaired waterbodies on the north coast that are subject to EPA TMDLs, but are not subject to related implementation planning.

Actions are cataloged and referenced to each specific waterbody. It might be prudent to review such actions suggested by the work plan for the waterbody(s) of your specific concern.

You might make comment on enforceability of actions, time period to implementation, likelyhood of implementation given Regional Board staffing and time lines.

This action needs to be reviewed and commented on – by Dec -14th.  I have fallen behind. I will try and get something out – early next week.

This plan is 243 pages long.  Links are noticed – below.

The due date for submission of written comments on the Work Plan to Control Excess Sediment in Sediment-Impaired Watersheds (the Work Plan) has been extended by two weeks to Friday, December 14, 2007.
