The Klamath Basin Monitoring Program is an independent collaborative monitoring framework serving to coordinate its member organizations’ activities within the Klamath Basin, including all tributary subbasins. The Klamath Basin Monitoring Program or KBMP, is a collaboration of state and federal agencies, watershed groups, Resource Conservation Districts, tribal entities and PacifiCorp, to understand and improve water quality conditions in the Klamath Basin. KBMP strives to implement, coordinate and collaborate on water quality monitoring and research throughout the Klamath Basin. KBMP members’ monitoring activities focus on characterizing sources of impairment through the study of ecosystem elements, with a primary focus on water quality, but also including fish populations and health, flows, benthos, and aquatic plant communities. KBMP aids the development and implementation of Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) plans by coordinating monitoring of loadings basin wide. KBMP also informs the public and tribal community of public health concerns (for more detail, visit the website www.kbmp.net).
The KBMP Coordinator is a full-time position with duties described below. The opening is for one-year beginning in January 2014. Continuation of the position beyond December 2014 is contingent upon additional grant funding. The KBMP Coordinator will be an employee of the San Francisco Estuary Institute’s Aquatic Science Center (SFEI – KBMP’s fiscal sponsor), but will report to the KBMP Steering Committee. The KBMP coordinator can be located anywhere in (or near) the Klamath Basin. Work is primarily in an office environment. Occasional travel may be required for field work and to attend meetings. The position is a full-time position with a salary in the range of $45,000 to $58,000 per year, depending on experience. Benefits (medical, vacation, etc.) are also provided.

The Program conducts routine monitoring of water, sediment, and biota (e.g., sport fish, bird eggs, etc.) throughout the Bay as well as special studies that address critical data or knowledge gaps. These studies are developed in close consultation with external stakeholders and nationally-recognized scientific experts. The Delta RMP (http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/rwqcb5/water_issues/delta_water_quality/co...) and the San Francisco Bay Nutrient Management Program (http://bayareanutrients.aquaticscience.org) are newer programs that will play similar roles as the Bay RMP.
