The Achievements Report highlights recent accomplishments of the SWAMP and its partners, framing the many projects SWAMP is a part of in the context of their value to the State of California and the public at large. The Achievements Report also describes how monitoring data have been used to answer critical water quality questions pertaining to California’s surface waters and how this information has been conveyed to resource managers and the public. Program activities are organized under the following categories: Monitoring, Assessments, Communication, Comparability, Coordination, and Management Decisions.

Bioaccumulation Monitoring Program

The goal of the Bioaccumulation Monitoring Program is to address the “Fishable” beneficial use through surveys of contaminant concentrations in fish tissue throughout waters of the state. The Bioaccumulation Oversight Group (BOG) serves as the advising body for SWAMP’s fish tissue monitoring program. Sampling occurs on a five-year cycle, rotating between lakes and reservoirs, coastal waters, and rivers and streams. The following reports are currently available:
