Regional Board Members
Regional Board Staff
The primary responsibility of the Regional Board is to protect the quality of the surface water and groundwater within the Region for beneficial uses. This duty is carried out by formulating and adopting water quality plans for specific water bodies, by prescribing and enforcing requirements on domestic and industrial waste dischargers, and by requiring cleanup of water contamination and pollution. Specific responsibilities and procedures of the Board are outlined in the Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act.
Regional meetings of the Board normally are held on the third Wednesday of each month in the Elihu M. Harris State Office Building, First Floor Auditorium, 1515 Clay Street, Oakland. They are scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m.
The purpose of the monthly meeting is to provide the Board with testimony and information from concerned and affected parties and to make decisions after considering the evidence presented. A public forum is held at each regular meeting where any person may address the Board on any matter within the jurisdiction of the Board, but may not be related to any item on the agenda. The Board welcomes information on pertinent problems, but comments at the meeting should be brief and directed to specifics of the case to enable the Board to take appropriate action. Written testimony must be received prior to the Board meeting by the date requested by staff. Verbal comments should only summarize the written material. New written testimony will not be entered into the record the day of the Board meeting.
Tape recordings are made of each
Board meeting and these tapes are retained in the Board's
office for two years. Anyone desiring copies of these
tapes may, at their own expense, arrange to have duplicate
tapes made by contacting the Executive Assistant at
(510) 622-2399. A copy of the written transcript may
be obtained by calling California Shorthand Reporting
at (415) 457-4417.
