Gabilan Creek Watershed Turbidity TMDL


On February 18, 2022, the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board adopted a Basin Plan amendment establishing total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) for turbidity in the Gabilan Creek watershed, located in Monterey County. Major streams in the Gabilan Creek watershed are impaired for turbidity and these TMDLs and associated implementation plan are intended to reduce turbidity and restore beneficial uses.

On June 7, 2022 the State Water Resources Control Board adopted a resolution approving this Basin Plan amendment. This Project will next be submitted to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) and USEPA for approval. The TMDLs become effective upon approval by OAL.
