The Regional Monitoring Program (RMP), is a 23-year year running “annual check-up” on the health of San Francisco Bay. Led by an SFEI science team, the RMP Update provides a concise overview of what the RMP is finding about Bay pollution, sources and trends. It also looks ahead to major water quality science efforts the coming years to serve the Bay Area’s eight million residents.

The report includes:

  • A summary of some of the most important science findings about our Bay’s health;
  • A summary of progress and plans to tackle our Bay’s top water quality concerns;
  • The latest monitoring results and trends for key pollutants, water quality indicators, and factors that influence Bay water quality; and
  • A “Top Ten” list of recent activities and accomplishments.

In a new "eBook" format, accessible on any browser, the 2014 Update now offers new ways to interact with report content. The eBook features a “novel” interface for online viewing, several videos, and interactive graphs and maps.

The Update is also available as a pdf file for downloading or viewing online.
