Nutrient Symposium – September 27, 2022
Who are we?
The Delta RMP is led by representatives of publicly owned treatment works, municipal storm water programs, irrigated agriculture, water suppliers, and state and federal agencies. We are an innovative collaboration of regulatory agencies, resource agencies, permittees, scientists and interested parties.
What Problem do we Solve?
State and federal laws require dischargers to monitor waters downstream of their discharge. For some types of data, this could be better accomplished through a coordinated monitoring program. Rather than continuing uncoordinated monitoring programs, regional monitoring allows dischargers to pool funds and expertise to more efficiently gather data to inform management and policy decisions facing the Delta.
The Delta RMP Mission:
Our mission is to better inform decisions on protecting and restoring beneficial uses of water by producing objective and cost-effective scientific information critical to understanding regional water quality conditions and trends in the Delta.
