Use of testing guidelines: update to incorporate latest federal guidance, add our plans for upland document, RIM


In 1998, the USACE and EPA issued new guidelines for evaluating the suitability of dredged material proposed for disposal in inland waters of the U.S., such as San Francisco Bay. The LTMS agencies have committed to produce a single document, a Regional Implementation Manual, outlining procedures for evaluating the suitability of dredged sediments for all disposal environments. The proposed amendment updates the reference to the federal testing guidelines for in-Bay disposal and states the Regional Board’s intention to participate in the development of the Regional Implementation Manual.
