Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act requires the identification of water bodies that do not meet, or are not expected to meet, water quality standards (i.e., impaired water bodies). The affected water body, and associated pollutant or stressor, is then prioritized in the 303(d) List. The Clean Water Act further requires the development of a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for each listing. In 2008, California began integrating the 303(d) List of Impaired Waters and the 305(b) Water Quality Assessment Report into a single report (Integrated Report). This Integrated Report will satisfy the requirements of both CWA Sections 303(d) and 305(b).

Since the 2020-2022 California Integrated Report cycle, the State Water Board has been administering the public process, including board hearings and development of the integrated report. While the Regional Water Boards play a significant role in the development of the integrated report, the Regional Water Boards no longer conduct individual board hearings and public comment periods. All public documents are available on the State Water Board’s program webpage.  More background information on the Integrated Report can be found in the State Water Board’s Fact Sheet.
