Salinas River Watershed Organophosphate Pesticides and Toxicity TMDL
On June 16, 2022, the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board adopted total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) for organophosphate pesticides and toxicity in the lower Salinas River watershed, located in Monterey County. Reducing organophosphate pesticide loading into waterbodies within the lower Salinas River watershed will reduce the frequency and severity of aquatic toxicity. The TMDL implementation strategy describes how the Water Board’s regulatory mechanisms will address organophosphate pesticide loads from various sources in order to attain water quality standards.
