SFEI worked with Valley Water and the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board to convene and facilitate a Technical Review Panel (TRP) as part of a Regional Temperature Study focused on assessing protective temperatures for Central California Coast steelhead. The TRP assessed the key considerations for protective temperatures for CCC steelhead, and developed ideas for a suite of studies that could help provide useful information for refining protective temperature guidelines for CCC steelhead. This effort included participation from representatives from several regulatory agencies as well as members of the public. SFEI supported the TRP in the development of a Recommendations Memo, which can be used to guide future research priorities for Valley Water, San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board, State Water Resources Control Board, US Environmental Protection Agency, and other interested parties.
