River Redux

The North Bay Bohemian

It seems the Bohemian's coverage of the excessive levels of bacteria in the Petaluma River Watershed made some waves... In short, Baykeeper argues that, although the SF Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board calls its plan a TMDL, the current plan does not meet the requirements needed to use that name. For instance, Ben Eichenberg, a staff attorney at San Francisco Baykeeper, tells the Bohemian that the current plan does not properly differentiate between the multiple possible sources of fecal matter.
