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 Wedron Silica discharge. 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. The determinations made by biologist-divers consisted of: (i) comparative abundance and diversity of plant and animal life; (ii) substrate characteristics; and (iii) limited physical measurements, including water temperature and clarity. The State Water Resources Control Board reimbursed the Department for part of the expenses incurred during this study. (24pp.)
