The Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program (SWAMP) Roundtable has formed a subcommittee, the Bioaccumulation Oversight Group (BOG) that develops plans for and guides implementation of SWAMP statewide bioaccumulation monitoring. The BOG is composed of State Water Resources Control Board and Regional Water Quality Control Board staff and representatives from other agencies and organizations including USEPA, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), the Department of Fish and Game (CDFG), and the San Francisco Estuary Institute (SFEI). The BOG has also convened a Bioaccumulation Peer Review Panel that is providing evaluation and peer review of the bioaccumulation program. The members of the Panel are internationally-recognized authorities on bioaccumulation monitoring. SFEI coordinates the BOG and is the technical lead for SWAMP bioaccumulation monitoring.
