Central Coast Areas of Special Biological Significance (ASBS) Regional Monitoring Program
The Central Coast ASBS Regional Monitoring Program (CC ASBS RMP) is a collaboration of various agencies and entities on the Central Coast, covering an area from Big Sur, in Monterey County, to Pt. Reyes, in Marin County. The project includes monitoring requirements (i.e. water sampling and analysis for various pollutants of concern) specified in the Special Protections for twelve (12) participants designated as Responsible Parties which include: The Counties of Marin, Monterey, San Mateo; the Cities of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Monterey, Pacific Grove; Caltrans, Hopkins Marine Station, Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Pebble Beach Company. The Scope of Work for the Central Coast ASBS Regional Monitoring Program has been developed through discussions with staff from State and Regional Water Boards, as well as the responsible parties discharging storm water into Areas of Special Biological Significance (ASBS). For additional information please contact your local agency and/or entity.
However, as a service to this worthwhile endeavor the members of the MRSWMP program are assisting the CC ASBS RMP members by posting meeting notices and agendas on this website.
