CD3 or Contaminant Data Display and Download is a web-based visualization tool for accessing water quality data for the San Francisco Bay-Delta region, including the RMP’s long-term dataset. The tool has been redesigned to leverage SFEI’s other interactive mapping efforts and debuts impressive new functionality, including enhanced spatial querying and generating dynamic statistical summaries and charts.
Other key benefits of the redesigned tool include:
The RMP has produced a synthesis report on PCBs that summarizes recent advances in understanding and makes recommendations for future studies. The report addresses nine priority management questions articulated by the RMP PCB Strategy Team.
Phil Trowbridge is the Program Manager for the Regional Monitoring Program for Water Quality in San Francisco Bay. The Bay RMP is a novel, multi-faceted regional monitoring program that uses pooled resources from dischargers and dredgers of San Francisco Bay to conduct and coordinate studies aimed at evaluating ecosystem health, characterizing sources and fate of contaminants, and informing potential management actions.
The Regional Monitoring Program for Water Quality in San Francisco Bay (RMP) recently published a technical report, authored by Dr. Rebecca Sutton of SFEI and her colleagues, that summarizes a series of RMP monitoring and research projects that have investigated the impacts of the flame retardants polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in San Francisco Bay.
