Abstract

The California Department of Fish and Game and the State Water Resources Control Board (through Regional Board #3, Central Coast) entered into an agreement whereby Department biologist-divers conducted a subtidal ecological investigation of the marine environment in the vicinity of the city of Carmel ocean outfall in Carmel Bay. The objective of the study was to provide the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) with data to assist them in evaluating the effects of the discharge on the marine environment at five stations selected by the RWQCB adjacent to the outfall terminus and two at a control area off Granite Point (Figure 1), and to provide pre-discharge data for a new discharge being constructed adjacent to the existing one. The determinations made by biologist-divers included: (i) the number and diversity of plant and animal life; (ii) substrate characteristics; and (iii) physical parameters, including water temperature and clarity. The State Water Resources Control Board reimbursed the Department for some expenses incurred during this study. The work was performed by California Department of Fish and Game biologists from the Department's research vessel KELP BASS.
