Abstract:

This volume focuses on the quality of the Bays water resource and the impacts other resources uses have had and will continue to make upon it. This appendix provides an assessment of existing conditions, identifies water quality problem areas and cites the Federal and State agencies currently responsible for management of the Bays water quality conditions. Based on projections of sewered populations and waste loadings developed by the various State agencies throughout the Bay Area, future needs and problem areas were then developed. Lastly, the means that might best be used to satisfy the projected water quality needs and recommendations for future water quality studies are identified.
