2024 Detailed Workplan and Budget.2023.
In 2024, the Regional Monitoring Program for Water Quality in San Francisco Bay (RMP) is entering its 32nd year of collecting data and communicating information to support water quality management decisions. This Detailed Workplan and Budget describes the activities that will be completed in 2024, the proposed funding levels, and the deliverables for each task.
The planned revenue from RMP fees for 2024 is $4,156k, with additional supplemental fees of $339k from municipal wastewater and $100k from municipal stormwater bringing the total revenue to $4,596k. The expected revenue is $5,216k as shown in Table 1 and Figures 1-2, which is reduced by $200k to account for the lower volume of dredged sediment being disposed of in the Bay, per the Long-Term Management Strategy (LTMS) plan. The $200k figure is a placeholder and the dredger contribution will be updated when we receive the final in-Bay dredge disposal volumes for calendar year 2023 (typically in March of the following year). The majority of the expenses in 2024 (71%) will be for Status and Trends monitoring and special studies (Tasks 6-7). The cost for running the RMP (Tasks 1-5) is $115k higher in 2024 than 2023 and funding allocations have been shifted slightly within each subtask.
