SF Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board

The mission of the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board is to preserve, enhance, and restore the quality of California’s water resources and drinking water for the protection of the environment, public health, and all beneficial uses. The SF Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board is one of nine Regional Water Quality Control Boards in California, all of which operate under the auspices of the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board). The Water Boards are tasked with implementing the Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act and the federal Clean Water Act and have regulatory responsibility for the water quality of California’s nearly 1.6 million acres of lakes, 1.3 million acres of bays and estuaries, 211,000 miles of rivers and streams, and about 1,100 miles of California coastline. Speakers discussed the latest topics of significant interest to the public and the priorities being pursued by the Regional Water Quality Control Board.
