Bays and Estuaries: Using Multiple Lines of Evidence

By Jennifer Hunt, Aroon Melwani, Ben Greenfield and Steve Bay

Abstract

sediment quality objectives (SQOs) that protect beneficial uses designated for California’s bays and estuaries. A key component of the SQO development process is regular review and feedback by committees of scientific experts, regulatory agencies, and affected stakeholders. Section 13393 of the California Water Code mandates that the State Water Board evaluate sensitive aquatic organisms, human health, and wildlife. The technical program has focused on three targets for exposure: 1) benthic organisms exposed directly to pollutants in sediments (direct effects); 2) wildlife indirectly exposed by dietary uptake of pollutants originally derived from sediments (indirect effects to wildlife); and 3) humans indirectly exposed by dietary uptake of pollutants originally derived from sediments (indirect effects on human health)
