Bay Protection and Toxic Hot Spot Cleanup Program

Document Background

On October 11, 2001, the Sacramento County Superior Court issued a writ of mandate directing that the site-specific variances for three Central Valley pesticide toxic hot spots be vacated and set aside. The writ also directed the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (Central Valley Water Board) and the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) to undertake the necessary actions to prepare and submit to the Legislature an amended Cleanup Plan for the pesticide toxic hot spots. The State Water Board vacated and set aside the site-specific variances in the Cleanup Plan on November 15, 2001. On March 13, 2003, the Central Valley Water Board adopted draft cleanup plans for the three pesticide toxic hot spots. After adoption by the Central Valley Water Board, the State Water Board is required to amend the Consolidated Hotspots Cleanup Plan and Functional Equivalent Document.
