Expert panel reviewing science tools for proposed stream biointegrity-biostimulatory policy

Posted February 1, 2019

A panel of scientific experts has launched a comprehensive review of a suite of technical products co-authored by SCCWRP that are intended to support the State Water Board in developing a biointegrity-biostimulatory policy for California wadeable streams.

The review, which began in December with a two-day meeting at SCCWRP, encompasses draft versions of technical reports, journal manuscripts and tools that collectively are serving as the technical foundation for the State in developing the policy. The policy’s goal is to protect the biological integrity of wadeable streams from the impacts of eutrophication and other stressors.

The six-member expert panel is scheduled to report out on its findings during a February 13, 2019 public forum at SCCWRP.
