Summary

The Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board (CCRWQCB) is comprised of nine part-time members appointed by the governor of California and confirmed by the Senate. The CCRWQCB's "basin plan" encompasses the hydrologic areas of the Central Coast region, issuing waste discharge requirements, enforcement action against violators, and monitoring water quality. [1]

Background

[2] The task of protecting and enforcing the many uses of water throughout the economic, residential, and environmental aspects of the region is an ongoing challenge for the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board.

The area includes Santa Cruz and Monterey Peninsula, the Salinas and Santa Maria Valleys, and the Santa Barbara Plains. [2]
