Regional Board Conclusion: "This pollutant is being considered for removal from the CWA section 303(d) List under section 4.2 of the Listing Policy. Under this section a single line of evidence is necessary to assess listing status.

Four lines of evidence are available in the administrative record to assess this pollutant. Data used for the original listing were from prior to 2006 and are not held in this assessment database.

Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against removing this water segment-pollutant combination from the CWA section 303(d) List.

This conclusion is based on the staff findings that:
1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy.
2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy.
3. Data used for the original listing were from prior to 2006 and are not held in this assessment database.
4. Pursuant to section 4.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are met."
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be removed from the section 303(d) list because applicable water quality standards for the pollutant are being exceeded.

Evaluation Guideline: EVIDENCE OF ALTERATION OF NATURAL RECEIVING WATER TEMPERATURES (NON-NATURAL TEMPS): The water temperatures of Mark West Creek do not reflect natural conditions as the environmental factors that influence water temperature have been altered by human activities. Examples of human alteration include stream flow changes resulting from water diversions and grazing activities which have created streambank erosion and inhibited the growth of riparian vegetation (CDFG 2006; Sotoyome RCD 2008). These factors, along with other human activities, have resulted in altered stream temperatures in Mark West Creek. EVIDENCE OF SALMONID PRESENCE & LIFE CYCLE USE: Coho and Steelhead present in Mark West Creek (Sotoyome 2008). Spawning occurs December-April and rearing occurs year round (Steiner Environmental Consulting 1996).

Regional Board Conclusion: This pollutant is being considered for placement on the CWA section 303(d) List under section 3 of the Listing Policy. Under section 3 a single line of evidence are necessary to assess listing status.

One lines of evidence are available in the administrative record to assess this pollutant. None of the samples exceed the objective.

Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination on the CWA section 303(d) List.

This conclusion is based on the staff findings that:
1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy.
2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy.
3. None of the samples exceeded the objective and this sample size is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating. A minimum of 16 samples is needed to determine if a beneficial use is fully supported using table 3.1.
4. Pursuant to section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met.
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be placed on the section 303(d) list. The readily available data and information is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating.

Regional Board Conclusion: This pollutant is being considered for placement on the CWA section 303(d) List under section 3.1 of the Listing Policy. Under section 3.1 a single line(s) of evidence are necessary to assess listing status.

Five lines of evidence are available in the administrative record to assess this pollutant. None of the samples exceed the objectives for Chromium in water. One of the one samples exceeds the objective for COLD and WARM beneficial uses for Chromium in sediment.

Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination on the CWA section 303(d) List.

This conclusion is based on the staff findings that:
1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy.
2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy.
3. One of one samples exceeded the objective of the COLD and WARM beneficial uses in sediment and this sample size is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating. A minimum of 16 samples is needed to determine if a beneficial use is fully supported using table 3.1.
4. Pursuant to Section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met.
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be placed on the section 303(d) list. The readily available data and information is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating.

None samples exceed the objectives. Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination on the CWA section 303(d) List. This conclusion is based on the staff findings that: 1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy. 2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy. 3. None of the samples exceeded the objective and this sample size is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating. A minimum of 16 samples is needed to determine if a beneficial use is fully supported using table 3.1. 4. Pursuant to Section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met.
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be placed on the section 303(d) list. The readily available data and information is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating.

Regional Board Conclusion: The data included in this decision were originally assessed under the "Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West Creek HSA" water body (Decision 13365). The "Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West Creek HSA" water body has been split into four water bodies for the current Integrated Report cycle: (1) Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West HSA, mainstem Mark West Creek downstream of the confluence with the Laguna de Santa Rosa, (2) Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West HSA, mainstem Mark West Creek upstream of the confluence with the Laguna de Santa Rosa, (3) Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West HSA, tributaries to Mark West Creek (except Windsor Creek and its tributaries), and (4) Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West HSA, Windsor Creek and its tributaries. LOEs 47183 and 47184 are copies of the original 2010 LOEs 7076 and 7068 respectively. Although there are no new data for this water segment-pollutant combination for the current Integrated Report cycle, the decision information has changed since the 2010 Integrated Report to reflect that total coliform data are not utilized in this decision as they are widespread in nature and occur in non-fecal sources such as soil and submerged wood. Fecal indicator bacteria (which includes Escherichia coli [E. Coli]) are being considered for placement on the Section 303(d) list under Section 3.2 of the Listing Policy. Under this section a single line of evidence (LOE) is necessary to assess listing status. One line of evidence for E. Coli is available in the administrative record to assess fecal indicator bacteria. In accordance with Section 3.3 of the Listing Policy, a 4% exceedance rate shall be used to add waters to the List "if water quality monitoring was conducted April 1 through October 31 only". However, data in this decision were collected including months outside the April 1 through October 31 range, and therefore are assessed under Section 3.2 of the Listing Policy at a 10% exceedance rate. Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination to the Section 303(d) list (i.e., sufficient justification to not list). This conclusion is based on the staff findings that: (1) The data used satisfy the data quality requirements of Section 6.1.4 of the Policy. (2) The data used satisfy the data quantity requirements of Section 6.1.5 of the Policy. (3) Zero of 2 E. Coli samples exceed the criteria and this sample size is insufficient to determine with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy if standards are not met under Section 3.2 as there must be a minimum of either (A) 26 samples, or (B) greater than or equal 5 exceedances of the objective with less than 26 samples is needed for application of Table 3.2. (4) Pursuant to Section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met.
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: This waterbody was not assessed this cycle. All decisions have been carried over from the previous cycle and remain the same.
 
State Board Review of Regional Board Conclusion and Recommendation:
 
State Board Decision Recommendation: After reviewing public comments on the draft 2018 303(d) list for the North Coast Region and after distributing written responses and the proposed final staff report, Water Board staff identified concerns with the proposed 2018 listing decisions pertaining to bacteria in waterbodies in the Russian River watershed. Therefore, this bacteria listing decision remains substantially unchanged from the 2014-2016 California Integrated Report to afford adequate time for staff and stakeholders to review proposed changes in a future listing cycle.

Evaluation Guideline: HuBac (Bacteroides) are present in the human gut and do not survive long outside of the human gut. When present in the water column, measurable HuBac indicate the recent discharge of human fecal waste. There is no defined health-based threshold associated with HuBac results. The detection limit for HuBac is <60/100mL. HuBac concentrations >1000/100mL, which is two orders of magnitude greater than the detection limit, is reliable evidence of the presence of human fecal waste.
Guideline Reference: Detection of the human specific Bacteroides genetic marker provides evidence of widespread sewage contamination of stormwater in the urban environment.

Evaluation Guideline: PhyloChip DNA microarray quantifies over 59,000 bacterial taxa in a single sample by targeting variations in the 16S rRNA gene. There is no defined health-based threshold associated with PhyloChip results. There is moderate evidence of human fecal waste in the water column when 10% or greater of the taxa measured in an ambient water quality sample are associated with the human gut. When 20% or greater of the taxa measured are associated with the human gut, there is strong evidence of the presence of human fecal waste in the water column. Samples with greater than 10% of the taxa measured associated with the human gut is evidence of the presence of human fecal waste in the waterbody.

DECISION ID
104890
Region 1     
Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West HSA, mainstem Mark West Creek upstream of the confluence with the Laguna de Santa Rosa
 
Pollutant: Lead
Final Listing Decision: Do Not List on 303(d) list (TMDL required list)
Last Listing Cycle's Final Listing Decision: New Decision
Revision Status Revised
Impairment from Pollutant or Pollution: Pollutant
 
Regional Board Conclusion: "This pollutant is being considered for placement on the CWA section 303(d) List under section 3.1 of the Listing Policy. Under section 3.1 a single line(s) of evidence are necessary to assess listing status.

Five lines of evidence are available in the administrative record to assess this pollutant. None of the samples exceed the objective.

Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination on the CWA section 303(d) List.

This conclusion is based on the staff findings that:
1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy.
2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy.
3. None of the one samples exceeded the objective and this sample size is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating. A minimum of 16 samples is needed to determine if a beneficial use is fully supported using table 3.1.
4. Pursuant to section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met."
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be placed on the section 303(d) list. The readily available data and information is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating.

Regional Board Conclusion: This pollutant is being considered for placement on the CWA section 303(d) List under section 3.1 of the Listing Policy. Under section 3.1 a single line(s) of evidence are necessary to assess listing status. [NUMBER] lines of evidence are available in the administrative record to assess this pollutant. None samples exceed the objectives. Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination on the CWA section 303(d) List. This conclusion is based on the staff findings that: 1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy. 2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy. 3. None of the samples exceeded the objective and this sample size is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating. A minimum of 16 samples is needed to determine if a beneficial use is fully supported using table 3.1. 4. Pursuant to Section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met.
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be placed on the section 303(d) list. The readily available data and information is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating.

Impairment from Pollutant or Pollution: Pollutant
 
Regional Board Conclusion: Decision name change from "Nitrate" to "Nitrogen, Nitrate."

This pollutant is being considered for placement on the CWA section 303(d) List under section 3.1 of the Listing Policy. Under section 3.1 a single line of evidence is necessary to assess listing status.

Three lines of evidence are available in the administrative record to assess this pollutant.
None of the samples exceed the objective for the MUN beneficial use(s).

Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination on the CWA section 303(d) List in the Water Quality Limited Segments category.

This conclusion is based on the staff findings that:
1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy.
2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy.
3. None of the samples exceed the objective for the MUN beneficial use(s) and this does not exceed the allowable frequency listed in Table 3.1 of the Listing Policy.
4. Pursuant to section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met.
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be placed on the section 303(d) list because applicable water quality standards are not being exceeded.

DECISION ID
104509
Region 1     
Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West HSA, mainstem Mark West Creek upstream of the confluence with the Laguna de Santa Rosa
 
Pollutant: PCBs (Polychlorinated biphenyls)
Final Listing Decision: Do Not List on 303(d) list (TMDL required list)
Last Listing Cycle's Final Listing Decision: New Decision
Revision Status Revised
Impairment from Pollutant or Pollution: Pollutant
 
Regional Board Conclusion: This pollutant is being considered for placement on the CWA section 303(d) List under section 3.1 of the Listing Policy. Under section 3.1 a single line(s) of evidence are necessary to assess listing status.

Two lines of evidence are available in the administrative record to assess this pollutant. None of the samples exceed the objective.
Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination on the CWA section 303(d) List.

This conclusion is based on the staff findings that:
1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy.
2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy.
3. None of the two samples exceeded the objective and this sample size is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating. A minimum of 16 samples is needed to determine if a beneficial use is fully supported using table 3.1.
4. Pursuant to section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met.
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be placed on the section 303(d) list. The readily available data and information is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating.

Region 1     
Russian River HU, Middle Russian River HA, Mark West HSA, mainstem Mark West Creek upstream of the confluence with the Laguna de Santa Rosa
 
Pollutant: Pesticides
Final Listing Decision: Do Not List on 303(d) list (TMDL required list)
Last Listing Cycle's Final Listing Decision: New Decision
Revision Status Revised
Impairment from Pollutant or Pollution: Pollutant
 
Regional Board Conclusion: These pollutants are being considered for placement on the Section 303(d) List under Section 3.1 of the Listing Policy. Under Section 3.1, a single line of evidence is necessary to assess listing status.

At least one line of evidence is available for each pollutant evaluated in this decision. Data were evaluated to determine protection of the following beneficial uses: COLD, MUN, WARM, and COMM.

None of the water and sediment samples exceed the objectives for the protection of COLD, MUN, WARM, and COMM.

Based on the readily available data and information, the weight of evidence indicates that there is sufficient justification against placing this water segment-pollutant combination on the CWA section 303(d) List. This conclusion is based on the staff findings that:

1. The data used satisfies the data quality requirements of section 6.1.4 of the Policy.
2. The data used satisfies the data quantity requirements of section 6.1.5 of the Policy.
3. None of the samples exceeded the objectives for COLD, MUN, WARM, and COMM. Additionally, the sample size for each pesticide is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating as a minimum of 16 samples is needed to determine if each beneficial use is fully supported using table 3.1.
4. Pursuant to Section 3.11 of the Listing Policy, no additional data and information are available indicating that standards are not met.
 
Regional Board Decision Recommendation: After review of the available data and information, RWQCB staff concludes that the water body-pollutant combination should not be placed on the section 303(d) list. The readily available data and information is insufficient to determine, with the power and confidence of the Listing Policy, the applicable beneficial use support rating.

Evaluation Guideline: The evaluation guideline for the protection of aquatic life from pyrethroids is one toxic unit equivalent. A toxic unit equivalent is equal to the sum of; Bifenthrin, Cyfluthrin, Cypermethrin, Lambda-Cyhalothrin, Deltamethrin, and Permethrin, and Fenpropathrin, each having their reported concentration divided their respective evaluation guideline prior to being summed. If this results in a value greater than one, the sample day is considered to be in exceedance of the water quality standard.
